The “Health Check” of the CAP Reform: Lessons from Its Impact Assessment

Part of the Studies in Productivity and Efficiency book series (SIPE, volume 7)


The “Health Check” of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reforms addressed three policy questions aimed at assessing the implementation of the reforms: how to simplify and render more efficient the system of direct payments; how to best grasp market opportunities; and how to meet new challenges, especially those linked to the effects of climate change. Although none of the proposed legislative changes constitute a fundamental reform of the CAP, they will, nonetheless, shape the debate on its future.
