CFP Status Quo Impact Assessment EC
DG MARE Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (European Commission) - Project Dates:
October 2009 - December 2009
Description of Project:
As part of the reform process of the Common Fisheries Policy, an impact assessment was completed for the status quo CFP, post-2012 over a 10 year period. Environmental, social, economic, and governance impacts were assessed using a range of indicators to consider the impacts of no policy reform. Some of the indicators used were quantified using the EIAA bio-economic model, while others were assessed quantitatively outwith the model or more qualitatively. The project constituted the first phase of a more complete impact assessment which considered a range of different policy options and objectives as compared to the status quo/do nothing option.
