This report focuses on the new features and institutional context of the current CAP 2014-20, adopted by the European Parliament and the European Council in December 2013. Special attention is given to risk management instruments and environmental measures. The conclusions drawn in this report seek to inform future reforms of the CAP.

Hide / Show Abstract

The Treaty of Lisbon defined a new institutional environment whereby, for the first time, the Common Agricultural Policy for 2014-20 was adopted by co-decision between the European Parliament and the Council. Co-decision was also the rule for adopting the European Union’s multiannual financial framework (MFF). The MFF sets ceilings for EU spending for the seven-year period between 2014 and 2020 and defines the financial boundaries of the Common Agricultural Policy. Monitoring and evaluation are strengthened in the CAP 2014-20 and tools are foreseen to assess the outcome of the CAP against the European Union’s policy objectives. Results are reported to the European Parliament and to the Council. These new institutional features of the CAP are described in this chapter.
