The European agricultural fund for rural development (EAFRD), the ‘second pillar’ of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), is implemented through rural development programmes (RDPs) which are co-financed by national budgets and may be prepared on either a national or regional basis. Currently, the CAP is in a transitional period (2021-2022) which implies that most of the CAP rules that were in place during the 2014-20 period still apply to EAFRD, while funding is drawn from the CAP’s budget allocation for 2021-27.

The EAFRD 2021-2027 will start on 1 January 2023. 2021-2022 are two years of transition via the 2014-2020 programs.
