EU Agriculture Atlas

The report is split both geographically and thematically. First it breaks down the different components of the CAP, introducing the history of the policy, it’s two-pillar system and it’s funding system. Then it delves into the nature and implications of the CAP on the ground, for even the same policy will have different consequences across an area as diverse as Europe. Accordingly, the report has contributions from France, Austria, Italy, Spain, Poland and Germany, covering who the key financial beneficiaries are as well as what the key issues in those countries are. Next the report examines the different implications of the current CAP, its encouragement of industrial agriculture, it’s impact on the environment and how it leads to the loss of small farmers, for example, before concluding with an analysis of how the European agri-food sector sits within global trade and development in the Global South.
