TEPSA Brief: “Common Agricultural Policy and Policy Coherence for Development”, Sara Canali and Michaël de Clercq

TEPSA is happy to present its new policy brief “Common Agricultural Policy and Policy Coherence for Development: Reflecting on the Impact of the new MFF in Policymaking towards Developing Countries”, written by Sara Canali, an Academic Assistant at the College of Europe, and Michaël de Clercq, a PhD researcher at Ghent University.

The new Multiannual Financial Framework for 2021-2027 protects existing nominal income support for its farmers, ensuring a continuation of the current funding schemes. This brief scrutinizes earlier criticism on the effects of the CAP on developing countries and looks at the challenges ahead. It argues that the external dimension of the policy structure has not evolved significantly, and the impact on developing countries remains a cause for concern in specific sectors.
