European regions must have a central role in the governance, management and delivery of the future CAP!

Press release 15/04/2021

On the eve of the first trilogue negotiations on the territorial dimension and the governance of the future Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the Agriregions Coalition, AREFLH, AREPO and Euromontana, representing together more than 30 regions from 9 Member States, have joined together to call for a greater recognition of the role of European regions in the elaboration, management and delivery of the future CAP strategic plans.

According to Loïg Chesnais-Girard, President of the Regional Council of Brittany, “this is a matter of bringing Europe closer to the citizens. It is essential that the European regions are fully involved in drawing up the future CAP Strategic Plans, that their role as regional managing authorities is recognised in the regulation and that they can continue to engage in a dialogue with the European Commission when necessary. Without this provision, we risk losing the wealth of management experience built up over the years in many European regions as well as the progress made in adapting the CAP, and in particular the rural development measures, to local needs”.

In particular, the European regions are asking for:

  • The possibility for all Member States to establish elements of the CAP strategic plan at regional level, as it is the case today;
  • A comprehensive and common European approach to the governance of interventions established at regional level through the possibility for all Member States to designate Regional Managing Authorities for the definition, management and implementation of the CAP interventions established at regional level as well as the setting up of regional monitoring committees in line with the partnership principle
  • The full involvement of regional authorities in the elaboration phase of the Strategic Plan as well as in its future governance and implementation, especially in the case of interventions established at regional level

The introduction of these improvements to the CAP Strategic Plans proposal will ensure that the territorial and bottom-up approach will be at the heart of the future CAP and of the Rural development policy in particular, while strengthening the coherence and consistency of the overall plan. Overall, this will result in a more effective implementation of the CAP strategic plans at territorial level.

 

The Coalition of European AGRIREGIONS is the voice of European regions mobilised to defend a fair and sustainable future Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and the role of regions in its implementation. It represents 16 regions from 7 Member States:

Açores, Andalusia, Autonomous Province of Bolzano – South Tyrol, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Bretagne, Castilla y Léon, Emilia-Romagna, Extremadura, Lombardia, Nouvelle Aquitaine, Pays de la Loire, Sibiu County, Toscana, Wielkopolska.
