What’s different about the new CAP?
- New way of working: Fairer, greener and more performance-based CAP
- Seeks to ensure a sustainable future for European farmers, provide more targeted support to smaller farms, and allow greater flexibility for EU countries to adapt measures to local conditions.
- Key tool for achieving the EU Green Deal ambitions
- Ten specific objectives, linked to common EU goals for social, environmental, and economic sustainability in agriculture and rural areas
Why has the name changed?
The name CAP Network Ireland is more aligned with our partner networks across Europe. It also distinguishes activities to support the new Common Agricultural Policy, (2023-2027) from those that were funded by the previous CAP and supported by NRN (2016 – 2020, extended to 2022).
