CAP Indicators

The Common Monitoring and Evaluation Framework (CMEF) for the CAP 2014-2020 identifies a set of performance indicators in four categories: context, output, result, and impact. The indicators are combined with further information (such as on trade and quality schemes) into 13 thematic presentations at EU and Member States level. Context indicators provide information on agricultural and rural statistics as well as general economic and environmental trends. Some of this information drills down to regional level (NUTS 2-3).
