The future of the Common Agricultural Policy after 2013:
 
 
 
The European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development has launched on the 12 April 2010 a public debate on the future of the Common Agricultural Policy after 2013. Since its beginning, the CAP has adapted itself in order to address the particular challenges and needs that agriculture and rural areas were facing from time to time. Over the years the CAP has been reformed several times, the most significant ones being the 2003 reform and the Health Check of 2008. The CAP has a lot to offer in facing the future challenges and in reaching the objectives of the EU 2020 strategy. The main objective of this debate is to have a CAP that addresses the needs of EU citizens by gathering the reactions from the general public on the future of the CAP after 2013.
 
 
 
The Maltese National Rural Network has also contributed to this public debate. The Maltese NRN organised three main activities from which contributions were collected, namely:
 
 
 
 A telephone survey to the general public;
A one-to-one semi-structured interviews with the key rural stakeholders;
A consultation meeting with rural stakeholders.
 
 
 
A report on the contributions that the Maltese National Rural Network collected was drafted and sent to the European Network for Rural Development. This report formed part of the contribution of the European Network for Rural Development to the Public debate on the Common Agricultural Policy after 2013.
