Future farm policy to rely on fair funding, MEPs urge
The post-2020 EU farm policy must be smarter, simpler, fairer and more sustainable, but also well financed and truly common to continue delivering food security in the EU, according to MEPs. The Agriculture Committee adopted last Wednesday a set of proposals on the reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) after 2020. The EU farm policy must rest on a common set of objectives, rules, tools and checks. Member States should design their national strategies on this basis and pick actions they feel best suited for them, MEPs claimed.
