Support to Agriculture

The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has gone through several reforms in recent years. Debates are ongoing regarding the future of the CAP post-2013, both in terms of support for farmers (‘Pillar 1’) and support for wider rural development (‘Pillar 2’).

The Rural Policy Centre has produced a number of publications relating to the future of the agricultural industry and, more specifically, to the reform of the CAP in recent months. These are available via the links below.
