Research for AGRI Committee study on comparative analysis of the CAP Strategic Plans

Jun 19, 2023 | EU Institutions

In June 2023, Research for AGRI Committee of the European Parliament published a study that provides a comparative assessment of the 28 Common Agricultural Policy Strategic Plans of the EU Member States and their effective contribution to the achievement of the CAP and Green Deal objectives. 

The new CAP framework introduced a common regulation to increase overall policy coherence of the CAP. Member States were asked to commit significant resources to green and sustainable objectives. This was underlined by the introduction of the eco-schemes, strengthened conditionality and significant funding for interventions benefitting climate, natural resources and biodiversity under Rural Development. 

The analysis of the 28 CAP Strategic Plans (SPs) shows the great diversity and heterogeneity of the approaches adopted by the Member States. 

The study assesses the main features of the regulatory framework for the 2023-2027 period including the approval process of the plans and provides an overview of the financial allocations of the 28 Strategic Plans and the specificities of their implementation.  

The study also provides a first evaluation of the relevance of the Strategic Plans and their contribution to the objectives of the European Green Deal. It concludes with an overall analysis of the added value of the new delivery model and a set of policy recommendations. 

On 29 June at 9am, the Research for AGRI Committee team will present the study at the European Parliament.
