The German CAP Strategic Plan
The ambition has yet to come
Scheid, Aaron and Sophie Ittner 2023: The German CAP Strategic Plan: The Ambition has yet to Come. In: Agricultural and Rural Convention – ARC2020. Brussels.
The German CAP Strategic Plan has the potential for an ambitious CAP 2023 to 2027. While the debate on the next CAP post-2027 is already starting, in this article Aaron Scheid and Sophie Ittner from Ecologic Institute argue that the German government needs to exploit all potential in the current CAP to increase the ambition towards more climate change mitigation and the protection and enhancement of natural resources and biodiversity. The coalition agreement gives them the mandate to do so.
This article is a synthesis of the report "Environment and Climate Assessment of Germany's Cap Strategic Plan".
