The aim of this paper is to analyse the question whether the recent Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reform is counter-productive to the objectives of the rural development programme or alleviating the attainment of its objectives. Austria is chosen as a case study because i) the rural development programme is more important than commodity policies as measured by total transfers, and ii) agricultural services and inseparable secondary activities have a relatively large share on total agricultural sector output. An agricultural sector model is presented that captures core features of the rural development programme including: a) broad regional, structural and activity differentiation, b) sufficient coverage of programme components (in particular agri-environmental measures), and c) secondary activities addressed by the programme. Simulation results show that the recent CAP reform will reduce the cost of production, lessen environmental harm and make the programme for rural development more attractive for farmers.
