The CAP is a common policy for all the Member states of the European Union. It is managed and funded at European level from the resources of the EU annual budget.
Launched in 1962, the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is a partnership between agriculture and society, between Europe and its farmers. Its main aims are:

  • to ensure that EU farmers can make a reasonable living.
