Streamlining water into Rural development Programmes

Streamlining water into Rural development Programmes

The revision of the Common Agricultural Policy, which started with the November 2010 Commission Communication on “The CAP towards 2020”, and was finalised with the publication of the relevant regulations in December 2013. These revisions had increased the extent to which water issues can be addressed by MS. Under Pillar II (Rural Development Programmes) there was an opportunity to influence the types and extent of measures related to addressing water issues that would be included in the national and/or regional RDPs for 2014-2020. This project supported DG Environment during the RDP approval process by analysing the draft RDPs as regards water management.
