Periodic Report - CAP-IRE (Assessing the multiple impacts of the Common Agricultural Policies (CAP) on rural economies)

Project ID: 216672
Funded under: FP7-SSH


This is the periodic Report of CAP-IRE funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Program (FP7). The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is the main expenditure chapter of the European Union (EU) with about EUR 44 billion per year. The objective of CAP-IRE is to develop concepts and tools to support future CAP design.

The challenge of the CAP-IRE project is to provide an overview of the inter-linkages between the different components of the CAP and the mechanisms through which they have an effect on rural economies. The project's strategy is to focus on the specific interplay between the CAP, farms and farm-households as the key node through which to understand the connections between policy and the wider rural context.

The results so far support the extension of the existing Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN) survey by adding additional questions on farm household purchasing and sales decisions. Further, there is a need for a better understanding of the interplay between the different components of the CAP with respect to the environment.
