Answer given by Mr Hogan on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-002592/2018

On 29 November 2017, the Commission issued a communication on the Future of Food and Farming(1) which set out the challenges, objectives and orientations for the future Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) after 2020.

Based on this communication, the Commission issued a set of legislative proposals(2) with a view for the CAP to be more result-driven, to boost modernisation and sustainability, including the economic, social, environmental and climate sustainability of the agricultural, forestry and rural areas, and to help reducing the Union legislation-related administrative burden for beneficiaries.

As regards the common market Organisation, the rules regarding public intervention for cereals are not subject to any modification and the buying-in prices as well as the general principles of the safety net are maintained.

As regards the promotion of environmental‐ and climate-friendly agricultural practices, the legislative proposals provide for an improved environmental and climate architecture with higher ambitions based on three specific objectives which reflect the various aspects of the close relationship between the environment and climate, farming and rural areas as a whole.

In line with the proposed new delivery model of the CAP, Member States will have to devise a mix of mandatory and voluntary measures according to their targets and needs with regard to the CAP’s environment and climate objectives. Sustainable maize production may thus be supported within the framework to be defined by Member States.
