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.

EU Direct Aid Payments - an overview

Direct aid payments to EU farmers have existed since the earliest days of the CAP, but until the early 1990s they were secondary in importance to market support. Following the “MacSharry reforms” of 1992, however, the balance between the two types of support shifted decisively in favour of direct payments.
