A study commissioned by DG Agriculture carried out by the Institute for European Environmental Policy in London has called for an expansion of rural development policy expenditures and further progress towards de-coupling farm subsidies from production, as a more appropriate policy approach in environmental terms. DG Agriculture argues that the report strongly supports the direction pursued under the Commission's mid-term review proposals, particularly the compulsory 'modulation' concept. The study calls for more targeted policy interventions to focus on appropriate farm management at farm level, and for market regimes to be amended where they currently providean incentive for environmentally damaging production.
