The EU wants to improve the productivity of agriculture while fighting the risks of climate change thanks to the CAP (Common Agricultural Policy).
Through the common agricultural policy (CAP) – and more specifically the European agricultural fund for rural development (EAFRD) – the EU has a role to play in supporting agriculture, agri-food, forestry and rural entrepreneurship.
Placing the family farm model firmly at the centre of a future CAP, the European Union’s agri-food sector needs to keep up with the 21st century, with a stronger emphasis on innovation, sustainability and quality.
