Fairer CAP Strategic Plans? A first appraisal of the drafts
Organised with ARC2020 - Agricultural and Rural Convention
This online event is organised to discuss about how the EU Member States are advancing their preparations of the CAP Strategic Plans before their final submission to the European Commission. The main focus is on the fairness elements of the draft plans. Fairness is not limited to the monetary and distributional aspects of direct payments (i.e. internal convergence, capping, redistributive payments), but encompasses a broader set of considerations, such as labor, market organisation, and targeting towards environmental needs.
With the CAP legislation post-2022 informally agreed by the EU Council, the European Commission, and EP Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development, this online discussion wants to inform civil society and policy makers about the state of play and trajectories of the plans in EU Member States, ahead of the key vote at the EP Plenary Session of 22-25 November 2021.
Are the draft Strategic Plans going towards a fairer CAP, and what does that mean besides money redistribution among recipients? This event will answer to this question by identifying and exposing main critical decisions made in the drafted plans, and detecting good practices across Member States (or proposing new ones). Moreover, it will unpack the unexplored areas still missing in the draft Strategic Plans, like social conditionality, gender, regional interventions, more attractive small farmer schemes, fairer producer organisations.
Key speakers and any actors involved in the preparation of the plans (policy makers, managing authorities, civil society organisation, farmer groups, evaluators) are invited to exchange their knowledge and views on how the draft plans are meeting the ambitions in terms of fairer agri-food and rural areas within the flexibility and subsidiarity offered by the CAP reform.
