The CAP post-2020: ideas for a Reform

Evidence-based (Common Agricultural) Policy - Virtual Issue

The new challenges faced by agricultural and food systems as well as the several opinions, stakes and ideologies around the CAP make complex the CAP reform process with a demand for evidence-based policy. The evidence-based policy represents a new opportunity for scientific communities to provide robust and validated facts to support effective policy-making process.

The scope of subjects in this virtual issue illustrates a contribution on CAP reform by addressing a broad range of topics including setting out of CAP priorities and impact on innovation and new technology adoption, structural and land uses changes as well as provision of public goods. These topics cover the main challenges to face by new CAP.

This virtual issue pulls together recent work, freely accessible papers, from BAE.
