The European Parliament is poised to vote on a significant reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), aimed at reducing environmental requirements and the administrative load on farmers and ranchers. This move, driven by rural protests, seeks to secure approval ahead of the European Parliament elections in June. With Member States' endorsement already secured in late March, the reform is on a fast track for adoption through an emergency procedure, eliminating the need for further negotiations.

Key changes proposed include the easing of conditions for environmental practices tied to CAP subsidies and the exemption of small farms from specific controls and sanctions.
