Monitoring results of national CAP Strategic Plans

Apr 6, 2023 | EU Institutions

EU countries started implementing their national Common Agricultural Policy Strategic Plans (CAP SPs) as of 1 January 2023 to provide income support to farmers and support them in the transition towards sustainable production.

In accordance with its transparency and monitoring requirements, the European Commission Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI) launched an online result indicators dashboard presenting the targets set at national level by each Member State in its approved CAP Strategic Plan, as well targets at EU level. 

All Member States were obliged to set targets in their CAP Strategic Plans which express desired ‘results’, in the sense of the intended level of uptake of funded CAP actions. The indicators used for setting such targets are referred to as ‘result indicators’ and are listed in Annex I of the CAP Strategic Plan Regulation.

The search in the dashboard can be conducted by country or by target. The CAP legislation includes 44 “result indicators”,linked to specific objectives. Not all 44 targets need to be included in each CAP Strategic Plan. The planning of targets depends on the needs and planned measures decided at national level.  

In the online dashboard, users can find out for example about the planned number of young farmers supported by CAP to set up in each EU country over 2023-27, the share of rural population benefitting from improved access to services and infrastructure through CAP support or the number of operations contributing to environmental sustainability and the achievement of climate mitigation and adaptation goals in rural areas.
