Agricultural and fisheries work programme

The Danish Presidency presented its agricultural and fisheries work programme at the meeting of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council this week. Although the Presidency does not intend to finish the reform of the CAP, it will leave prepare the work for following presidencies. Furthermore, it aims to make agriculture greener, more sustainable, with fewer administrative burdens whilst ensuring high-quality and safe production and a high level of animal welfare.
The Presidency believes that one of the solutions to achieve a greener and more sustainable agriculture could be the use of environmentally -nature- and climate-friendly farming methods, these latter expected to be developed  through innovation and research in agriculture.
Regarding the fisheries policy reform, the Council will aim to conclude the debate on the reform package, which consists of a new basic regulation, a new common market organisation and a new European maritime and fisheries fund for 2014-2020.
Following the keen interest of the Presidency, the Council will consider the new animal welfare strategy presented by the Commission at the 23 January Council meeting. One of the Presidency's main aims is to reduce the amounts of unwanted catch and bring an end to the practice of discarding.
