Open letter to the European Commission requesting improved transparency in the assessment and approval of the revised Rural Development Programmes and future CAP Strategic Plans

In this letter, together with BirdLife, we express our concerns about the lack of transparency in the process of assessing and approving the revised Common Agricultural Policy’s (CAP) Rural Development Programmes (RDPs). In particular, we strongly regret that the European Commission refused to publish its observation letters on the draft revised RDPs while the decision-making processes were still ongoing in order to allow for effective public scrutiny of and participation in these crucial decisions. The letter calls on the Commission to change its practice and greatly improve the transparency of the future process of approving the CAP Strategic Plans.
