The Common Agricultural Policy

PAN Europe proposes a  revision of existing policies of the CAP (green component) and as well as new policy tools in order to encourage serious uptake of low input farming across Europe, including organic.

Pan Europe's work on the CAP focuses on the Regulation (EC) 1305/2013 on Rural Development of the CAP, the Regulation (EC) 1306/2013 on Horizontal issues such as funding and controls of the CAP and the Regulation (EC) 1307/2013 on Direct payments for farmers of the CAP.
