Will CAP eco-schemes be worth their name? A report to look at CAP Strategic Plans (CSPs) across 21 EU Members States

On the 29th of November 2021, three major European associations: BirdLife Europe, the European Environmental Bureau (EEB), and WWF European Policy Office, have published a  report to look at CAP Strategic Plans (CSPs) across 21 EU Members States.

This report aims to assess if the new form of direct payments for environmentally friendly farming / eco-schemes, are likely to deliver for environment and climate and align with the objectives of the EU Green Deal.

Although the CSPs are subject to further changes before their formal submission to the Commission at the end of this year, they do serve as a good indication of how some 48,5 bn of EU funding is spent in the post-2022 CAP.
