Abstract

The current reform of the EC Agricultural Policy decouples subsidies from production and introduces the new concept of “eco-conditionality” which makes the receipt of
subsidies contingent on compliance with a number of environmental standards. This reform, put in place by the Commission, involves a high risk that the cultivation of
some Mediterranean products will be abandoned. Their producers will have to meet the challenge of competitiveness and avail themselves of appropriate mechanisms such as codes of good agricultural practices and the application of efficient management systems.
