DARD Consultation on EU Commission Communication: The CAP towards 2020
21 December 2010
The EU Commission has published a Communication entitled ‘The CAP towards 2020: Meeting the food, natural resources and territorial challenges of the future.’
The paper sets out the Commission’s initial thoughts on the future of the CAP and paves the way for formal legislative proposals which are expected to be published around July 2011.
The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (DARD) is seeking your views on the Communication in order to inform its own position and response.
The key issues arising from the document are identified in the Consultation Questions and the Department would greatly value your response.
The Rural Network for Northern Ireland has produced a factsheet on the Common Agricultural Policy - Past, Present and Future.
