Set of legislative proposals put forward by the European Commission in June 2018 aimed at a revision of the European Union's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) for the period 2021-2027.
The set of proposals are intended to offer Member States greater flexibility and responsibility for choosing how and where to invest their CAP funding in order to meet the goals set at EU level for the agricultural sector, while at the same time ensuring fair and targeted support to farmers' income. The initiatives are for a Regulation on the CAP Strategic Plans (a proposed new way of working covering direct payments to farmers, rural development support and sectoral support programmes), a regulation on the Single Common Market Organisation (CMO) and a horizontal regulation on financing, managing and monitoring the CAP.
These proposals gave shape to the ideas for the future of the Common Agricultural Policy, as outlined in the Communication on the Future of Food and Farming put forward by the European Commission at an earlier stage. They were also put forward in the framework of the discussions on the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for the period 2021-2017.
