The new CAP 2020 entered into force as of 1 January 2015. With this CAP reform, direct payments (DP) are more strongly oriented towards certain actions, in particular towards climate and environm. protection, areas and beneficiaries. DP now comprise the basic payment, the payment for agric.practices beneficial for the climate and the environment (the so-called “greening”), a payment for young farmers, and a coupled payment. In the articles below you will learn more about the new CAP and find links to the homepage of the Austrian paying agency, AMA.
