Rural Development Regulation 2014-2020
The current Rural Development Regulation (Reg. 1305/2013) entered into force in January 2015. The year 2014, although obviously falling within the 2014-2020 financial planning period, was treated as a ‘transitional’ year during which the old 2007-2013 schemes essentially continued in force (administered by Reg. 1310/2013). This was because of time delays in getting the new RDPs approved and implemented, due to the 2013 CAP reform.
