Conference "The CAP towards 2020 – taking stock with civil society" (Brussels, 13/07/2012)

This event was organised by the European Commission as a follow-up to the broad consultation on the challenges faced by European agriculture and the need for policy intervention, which took place in July 2010, on the initiative of Dacian Cioloş, European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development.

The conference provided a forum for civil society to debate and discuss the CAP reform proposals for post-2013 which were adopted by the Commission on 12 October 2011, and the degree to which the proposals contribute to meeting the challenges identified during the public debate launched in 2010.
