On 2 February 2017, Commissioner Phil Hogan launched a major consultation on the future of the common agricultural policy (CAP).
The three-month consultation allowed participants to share their views on the challenges faced by the EU agricultural sector, its rural areas and society as a whole, and on how a simpler, more modern CAP could potentially be used to meet them. This conference is a chance to take stock of the results of the consultation and to see how they match the scientific evidence from the ground compiled by the Commission.
The results of both the consultation and the on-the-ground analysis will feed into a Communication on modernising and simplifying the CAP to be published by the Commission later in 2017 which will assess the different options for possible policy developments.
