CAP Reform Profile - Belgium

29 SEP 2008

Would you like to contribute to CAP2020?

In the Reform Profiles, an overview is made of each Member State’s position on the CAP Health Check, the Budget Review and the longer term reform of EU agricultural policy. Attitudes shaping the reform position also need to be explored, including views on food security, for example. Once the overview is written it will be published on the website, and will need to be regularly updated as new information comes to light, relevant events take place and key speeches are made.

IEEP is looking for individuals with a thorough understanding of the politics shaping CAP reform in their Member State and with excellent and trusted contacts in national agricultural ministries, environment ministries, finance ministries, as well as with other stakeholders.

If you are interested in writing and keeping up to date the Reform Profile for Belgium, please contact us via the email address on the Contact page.
