French farmers’ union puts post-2020 CAP consultation at risk

In February, the European Commission officially launched a public consultation for the post-2020 Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The consultation period is open until 2 May and through this process, several stakeholders are exchanging their views about what the future of European agriculture should look like.

In March, the leading French farmers’ union (Fédération Nationale des Syndicats d’Exploitants Agricoles-FNSEA) shared a response guide for the CAP consultation with its local sections, the Fédérations Départementales des Syndicats d’Exploitants Agricoles (FDSEA).

EURACTIV.com obtained this document, which raises severe concerns about the credibility of the process as well as data protection issues.

The post-2020 EU Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) should include targeted support measures for farmers to invest in precision farming technologies with proven environmental benefits, Ulrich Adam said in an interview with EURACTIV.com.


In its letter, the FNSEA noted that NGOs, especially from Germany, had already gathered more than 8,000 replies to the questionnaire.
