Heading 3 is the second biggest heading in the proposal in terms of funding, and is dedicated to programmes supporting: (8) agriculture and maritime policy, and (9) environment and climate action. Heading 3 includes programmes and funds currently included under heading 2 and related to the common agricultural policy, the common fisheries policy, rural development, and environmental measures. The two agricultural funds – the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund (EAGF) and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) – account for most of the funding under this heading. The allocation for the EAGF and EAFRD in comparison with the ‘virtual’ current MFF has been reduced by more than 15 %. The proposed European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) would amount to €5.45 billion, or approximately 13 % less than in the current MFF, after deducting current UK spending.
