Making Sense of the New Lexicon of CAP Reform: EU Presidency, Government and Stakeholder Inputs to the CAP Reform Debate

04 FEB 09 - POSTED IN NEWS AND BLOG POSTS

In this IEEP CAP2020 Policy Briefing, we examine the ways in which the CAP reform debate is being shaped by the EU Presidency, government and stakeholders in a range of reports, vision documents and think pieces. There is a broad consensus that the CAP should be reformed, however, there are differences in the arguments being mobilised to underpin the case for further reform. In particular, we examine the value of some of the concepts introduced by these documents - such as ‘public goods’ - for providing legitimate and operational objectives for a post-2013 CAP.

CAP Reform Profile - Germany

29 OCT 08 - POSTED IN NEWS AND BLOG POSTS

Germany’s official position is focused on the maintenance of direct payments at current levels until 2013 at the very least. At present, the German government will not accept a decrease in direct payments or an increase in the rate of modulation in order to increase funding for Pillar 2 measures. Germany argued against the Health Check proposal to increase milk quotas and would prefer a milk fund to be introduced and funded through Pillar 1. The view of environmental bodies and NGOs differs significantly to the more conservative outlook of the government and the main farmers union, the DBV.
