The Common Agricultural Policy after 2013

Legal proposals for the CAP after 2013

The European Commission's  proposals for a reform of the CAP after 2013 aim to strengthen the competitiveness and the sustainability of agriculture and maintain its presence in all regions, in order to guarantee European citizens healthy and quality food production, to preserve the environment and to help develop rural areas.

On 12 October 2011 the Commission presented a set of legal proposals designed to make the CAP a more effective policy for a more competitive and sustainable agriculture and vibrant rural areas.

The legal proposals are accompanied by an impact assessment that evaluates alternative scenarios for the evolution of the policy on the basis of extensive quantitative and qualitative analysis.

What happens next?

 

Following a debate in the European Parliament and the Council, the approval of the different regulations and implementing acts is expected by the end of 2013, with a view to having the CAP reform in place as from 1st January 2014.


As it is not realistic for Member States to have all the necessary administrative procedures in place by the start of next year and in order to ensure continuity, the Commission proposed, on 18 April 2013, transitional rules for some elements of policy.
