EU Common Agricultural Policy Reform

Just over one third of the European Union (EU) budget, the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) for 2023-2027 was formally adopted after extensive stakeholder dialogue and negotiation between the co-legislating EU institutions: the European Commission, the Council of Member States (MS) Agriculture Ministers (AGRIFISH), and the European Parliament. Major changes from the previous CAP include a new “delivery model” that de-centralizes funding and the requirement that EU Member States develop National Strategic Plans (NSPs) in line with Commission priorities, such as the EU Green Deal.
