Mapping Study of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and Analysis of Joint Efforts
Ecologic Institute is contributing to a study aiming to map the implementation choices of Member States in the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) Strategic Plans. It also aims to assess the joint effort of Member States towards agricultural, rural development and environmental policy goals. This study is part of the European Evaluation Helpdesk for the CAP, which supports the European Commission's Directorate-General for Agriculture and Rural Development (DG AGRI) and Member States in the evaluation and implementation of a performance-based monitoring and evaluation framework for the CAP from 2022.
The main objectives of this study are the following:
- To map the implementation choices of Member States regarding the selection and design of interventions, as well as strategic choices and budgetary decisions
- To identify and assess Member States' choices for Specific Objectives
- To analyse the potential effects of the policy choices made by Member States, focusing on the assessed "joint effort and common ambition" made in attaining the various Specific Objectives
- To assess the consistency and contribution to specific EU policy ambitions (i.e. the Green Deal, the Farm to Fork Strategy and the Biodiversity Strategy)
Ecologic Institute coordinates the work on the environmental Specific Objectives (SO4, So5 and SO6) and leads the analysis on Specific Objective 05 (foster sustainable development and efficient management of natural resources such as water, soil and air, including by reducing chemical dependency).
