A major guide to the latest reform to the Common Agricultural Policy.

In June 2013, politicians approved the first major reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) in a decade, following months of haggling over quotas, subsidies, and measures to improve environmental accountability.

But when the new rules took full effect in 2015, a year behind schedule, some of the same leaders who approved it were calling for changes to policies they said were too cumbersome to administer.

In 2016, the European Commission took initiatives to simplify the CAP and help farmers implement it, saying the process will be continued until 2020.
