    From Cork 2.0 Declaration to concrete actions Adopted References: NAT/709 EESC-2017 Own-initiative Rapporteur: Sofia Björnsson (Various interests - GR III / Sweden)

    Rural development is a horizontal issue that affects practically all policy areas.

    The EESC welcomes the Cork 2.0 Declaration that offers strong ongoing support for a rural policy at EU level. The EESC sees itself as a natural partner when it comes to implementing the declaration, and requests that the Commission continue producing progress reports on said implementation.

    Rural regions in the EU are not homogeneous and situations vary between and within Member States. These differences mean there is a need for focus and a strategic approach when using available EU funds. This must be based most importantly on initiatives from those living in rural areas.

    Restrictions on hazardous substances (RoHS) Adopted References: NAT/707 EESC-2017 Referral - Rapporteur: Brian Curtis (Workers - GR II / United Kingdom)

    RoHS 2 addresses the waste hierarchy’s highest priority, waste prevention. Waste prevention includes measures that reduce the content of harmful substances in materials and products. Decreasing the amount of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic waste benefits the management of such waste as a result.

    A possible reshaping of the CAP Adopted References: NAT/703 Exploratory Opinion Rapporteur: John Bryan (Various interests - GR III / Ireland) Plenary Session: 526 - 31 May 2017 - 1 Jun 2017

    In this exploratory opinion, prepared at the request of the European Commission, the EESC provides its contribution to the ongoing reflection on the modernisation and simplification of the CAP post 2020.  A reshaped CAP must retain the positive aspects of the current policy and adopt new measures to deal with the new challenges which include societal demands for the delivery of public goods, the EU commitments under the United Nations SDGs, climate change commitments under the COP21, bilateral trade deals and market volatility. A reshaped CAP must also get the correct balance between the needs of the consumer, taxpayers and producers.
