Sustainable agriculture in the EU

Agriculture occupies a unique position at the heart of the European Union’s society, environment and economy.

With this in mind, the common agricultural policy (CAP) combines social, economic, and environmental approaches on the path towards achieving a sustainable system of agriculture in the EU.

Κοινωνικά βιώσιμη ΚΓΠ

Η ΚΓΠ στηρίζει τις αγροτικές κοινότητες και συμβάλλει στους βασικούς ρόλους που διαδραματίζουν η γεωργία και η δασοκομία στην ευρύτερη κοινωνία.

Περιβαλλοντική βιωσιμότητα

Η ΚΓΠ αποσκοπεί στην αντιμετώπιση της κλιματικής αλλαγής, στην προστασία των φυσικών πόρων και στην ενίσχυση της βιοποικιλότητας στην ΕΕ.
