My Departmental colleague, Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue T.D., today announced that the Government has agreed an exchequer contribution of €2.30bn for the CAP Strategic Plan 2023-2027. This brings total funding for the plan to €9.8bn.
At today's Press Announcement I congratulated Minister McConalogue on securing this funding, which means farmers can be supported as they up their environmental ambition and farm in a way which protects biodiversity and climate as well as supporting their enterprises and their land.
Over the past 5 years or so, our farmers have been acknowledged and praised internationally for the way they have delivered results through EIPs such as the Burren, Bride and Hen Harrier Projects. Through the AECM, this Cap Strategic plan will build on that model and that expertise, while it also provides the support necessary to deliver on our increased organic farming targets.
