The Romanian Rural Development Programme (RDP) [Romania]

The RDP is the largest programme addressing the agriculture sector in Romania. With some 9.5 billion EUR over a seven-year period (2014-2020), the RDP for Romania focuses mainly on three priority areas: promoting competitiveness and restructuring in Romania's large agricultural sector; environmental protection and climate change; and stimulating economic development, job creation and a better quality of life.

Recommendations

As a general remark, agricultural emissions and the benefits of tackling them are largely overlooked in the Romanian NECP. For the RDP specifically, which has already been implemented since 2014, an ex-post evaluation should be carried out to investigate the impact of the programme on GHG emissions.
