Understanding the CAP

The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has been supporting farmers since 1962 to provide healthy and affordable food to 500 million of European citizens.

But the Common Agricultural Policy is much more than food production.

It contributes to maintain a vibrant rural economy, promotes quality and innovation, encourages the sustainable management of natural resources, rewards environmental–friendly practices and enables a bottom–up approach to local development. In exchange, farmers not only provide quality food but also maintain landscapes and biodiversity and play a key role in climate change mitigation.

Starting from January 2015, the new CAP aims to enhance sustainability and competitiveness while it continues to foster the market orientation of the European agriculture. The whole policy has been completely reviewed and it offers new interesting opportunities for mountain farmers and rural actors.

Find out more about the new CAP:

  • Brochure “A new CAP– Mountains of Opportunities”. 12 pages presenting the features of the new Direct Payments, the new Common Market Organisation and the most interesting Rural Development measures. The brochure is available in 8 EU languages. Download it in English, French, Spanish, Basque, Portuguese, Italian, Romanian and Slovenian.
