[Ticker] EU Commission told to improve CAP data analytics

EU Reporter

The European Commission lacks some essential data tools for assessing the implementation and design of its Common Agriculture Policy (CAP), EU auditors said in a Tuesday report. “The commission should do more to tap the potential of big data for analysing the CAP,” said lead auditor Joëlle Elvinger. The CAP accounts for over a third of the budget, while agriculture is responsible for about 10 percent of EU emissions.
