The European Rural Development Policy During 2014 - 2020


  • LUCIAN Paul

    (Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu, Romania)


The common agricultural policy has generated contradictory discussions between Member States. Several successive reforms, due to the continuous changing of funding instruments within the common agricultural policy have lead to several changes within the policy. Since the 2000s, the reform policy was reorganized into two complementary pillars, funded through entirely different funds. Thus, the rural development policy becomes separate and specific, rather than common. The current reform, in place starting since 2013 is to bring new several new challenges: maintaining competitiveness of European agriculture within global markets and the promotion of organic farming and creating new jobs. The E.U. Rural Development Policy is aligned with the Europe 2020 strategy, helping to transform the EU through a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. The National Rural Development Policy 2014 - 2020 is aligned with the overall objectives of the common agricultural policy and the strategy "Europe 2020" and aims to contribute to the development of agriculture and rural areas in Romania. As a new element, the rural development policy is financed by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development together with other funds of the Common Strategic Framework. It will mention the aim of the paper, research goals and expected results.
