Common Agricultural Policy (CAP)

In the framework of its research activities and the support it provides in policy-making, INRA is launching a cycle of internal seminars beginning in September 2017 on the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).

Each seminar is focused on a specific theme related to the CAP and its evolution in the context of the CAP after 2020. It reviews related scientific knowledge with presentations by researchers from INRA and partner academic institutes. The purpose is to identify top-priority research needs and glean useful insight which can support policy-making.

To this end, a summary of each seminar will be published.

This blog covers this cycle of seminars and, more broadly, INRA research on the CAP and its future. Available on the blog are all seminar-related documents and other material, which can be used to understand and analyse the challenges, objectives and instruments of Europe’s first common policy project : the CAP.

 

In a short video, INRA CEO Philippe Mauguin presents the cycle of seminars and more generally, the objectives of INRA research on the CAP. We also provide the INRA contribution to the European Commission consultation on modernising and simplifying the CAP (May 2017). This contribution defines five priorities for the (next) CAP. These five priorities will be presented and discussed in the cycle of seminars.

Do Pillar I CAP green payments encourage the adoption of practices which reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture?

 
 
Published on 02/16/2018

Greenhouse gas emissions from the agricultural sector represent 9.8% of total emissions in the European Union, and 17.8% of emissions in France.

A 2013 INRA study identified 26 technical solutions capable of reducing these emissions. The study also calculated a potential reduction by the year 2030 and assessed the cost per equivalent tonne of CO2.

At the request of the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development of the European Parliament, an additional study was conducted to assess the degr...
