The latest Common Agricultural Policy reform provides national authorities with several implementation options for fine tuning individual goals. Among other, member states can opt for regionalization, i.e. vary the basic payment unit value between national agronomic or administrative regions that have been defined at the beginning of the programming period. We present a Decision support System that support national authorities to implement regionalization in a transparent way facilitating collaboration with different shareholders.
