agriculture cap and the global challenge
Agriculture, CAP and the global challenge
  • The fact
      • Global population in 2050: 9 bn
  • The challenge
      • To increase agricultural production in a sustainable manner
  • The international focus
      • G20 – Final declaration, Cannes, Nov. 2011
        • “Increasing agricultural production and productivity is essential to promote food security and foster sustainable economic growth. ...”
  • This must be reflected in a reformed CAP
definition of competiveness
Definition of competiveness

Version 1:

Protection of markets to keep competitors out.

Version 2:

Sales of products in direct competition with others – based on price and quality.

future cap
Future CAP
  • What is likely to happen with the CAP
      • Decreasing overall budgets for agriculture
      • Flat rate of direct payments
      • Greening component
      • Modulation (up to 10 % can be moved)
      • Producer organizations for all products
      • Safety-net (market management)
multiannual financial framework 2014 20
Multiannual financial framework 2014-20
  • Overall budget increased by 2.3%
      • 1,025 bn €
  • Agriculture budget reduced by 11%
      • 383 bn €
      • Direct support budget nominally unchanged
  • Further 15.2 bn € complements the agricultural budget
      • 4.5 bn € research and innovation
      • 2.2 bn € food safety
      • 2.5 bn € support for most deprived
      • 3.5 bn € reserve for crisis in agricultural sector
      • 2.5 bn € European Globalisation Fund
distribution of direct payments
Distribution of direct payments

Pillar 1:

DK loses approx. € 34 mio. or 5.7%

(Uncertainty about modulated funds)

  • DAFC position:
  • We agree that is fair to establish a new distribution of the direct payments to benefit some new member states
  • However, present distribution reflects “objective criteria”
  • Proposal for new distribution discriminates against member states with many livestock
challenge
Challenge
  • How to compete in the future, with countries outside
  • the EU, who do not face the same restraints on
  • animal welfare , environment, appliance of new
  • technology etc. ?
  • WTO – reducing import protection in the future.
  • Agricultural budget is declining – overall less support
  • for the EU-farmer.
  • Supermarket chains are getting bigger and more
  • concentrated and powerful
greening general position
Greening – general position
  • DAFC generally support a greener CAP – including pillar 1
  • Subsidies should be linked to the delivery of public goods (e.g.: environment and climate change)
  • Concrete proposal should be
      • more flexible;
      • more targeted to challenges in different member states;
      • incentives for introducing general regulation;
      • less bureaucratic for the farmer
conclusion we need simplification
Conclusion: We need simplification!
  • More proportionality
      • The same sanction should have the same consequence for different farmers
  • Fewer, clearer and more targeted cross compliance requirements
  • Reduction in the number of controls, if control system is working well
in conclusion
Pillar 2In conclusion
  • Greening of the CAP
      • recognising the frontrunners
  • Increasing share of RD-budget
      • to better reflect our challenges
  • Convergence between MS
      • distribution to reflect ag. production
  • Flat rate
      • internal distribution to be determined by MS
