Designing of EU aid in the area of rural development policy
Languages of publication
The next EU financial perspective 2014–2020 will bring many changes in designing and implementing of EU aid in the area of the Common Agricultural Policy, especially in the rural development policy. These changes bind proposed mechanisms of the Common Agricultural Policy with the Europe 2020 Strategy. This strategy envisages greater integration of the objectives of the Common Agricultural Policy with the objectives of other EU policies (regional policy, social policy, cohesion policy, fisheries policy). Author of this article is not fully convinced of the effectiveness of these changes. This view results from decreasing aid measures for each of these policies. Moreover, the European Commission has been granted powers to determine the distribution of this aid measures without clear criteria. Execution of the Programme of Rural Development Area may be jeopardized because of the expected shift of some funds from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development to financing direct payments. For the full realization of the objectives of rural development policy, it is necessary to clearly specify the size of the funds allocated to rural areas in aid programs financed by other funds of the Common Strategic Framework.
