Overview of CAP Reform 2014-2020


The new agreement on CAP reform reached in 2013 is historic since for the first time the entire CAP was reviewed all at once and the European Parliament acted as colegislator with the Council.

The new CAP introduces a new architecture of direct payments; better targeted, more equitable and greener, an enhanced safety net and strengthened rural development. The reform therefore focused on the operational objectives of delivering more effective policy instruments, designed to improve the competitiveness of the agricultural sector and its sustainability over the long term.

As a result it is adapted to meet the challenges ahead by being more efficient and contributing to a more competitive and sustainable EU agriculture.
