1st meeting of the Thematic Group on CAP Strategic Plans: Monitoring Committees
This was the first meeting of the Thematic Group (TG) on CAP Strategic Plans: Monitoring Committees, organised by the CAP Implementation Contact Point.
EU Regulation 2021/2115 sets down the rules on support for CAP Strategic Plans (CSP), including the monitoring of the CSP implementation. It is expected that monitoring will be shared between the national Managing Authority and a national Monitoring Committee, with the latter being responsible for monitoring the effectiveness of the implementation of the CSP. The importance attached to Monitoring Committees and their critical role in supervising the effective implementation of interventions across both funds under CSP was recognised by the members of the recent Thematic Group on CAP Strategic Plans: Towards Implementation.
The Thematic Group (TG) provided opportunities to exchange on the design and operation of Monitoring Committees as part of wider governance of CSP implementation. The TG also explored how inclusive Monitoring Committees are in terms of attracting appropriate representation from across the rural spectrum and ensuring there is appropriate capacity within the membership to ensure that all voices are heard, are on an equal footing and are valued by the Monitoring Committee as a whole.
Aims of the meeting:
- Exchange experiences in the establishment and operation of Monitoring Committees, including lessons learned from previous programming periods.
- Identify and share possible good practices on different aspects of Monitoring Committee's operations.
