From the Winter 2014/2015 Issue "Europe Under Fire"

The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is the European Union program of agricultural subsidies that aims to maintain viable food production, sustainable management of natural resources, and balanced territorial development. Since 1962, the European Union has coordinated CAP, and the policy now comprises 40 percent of the EU’s annual budget. But not all policies are created equal. High-income countries disproportionately receive greater subsidies than low-income countries. World Policy Journal highlights the biggest winners and losers of the recent CAP reforms, which distribute subsidies among farms more homogeneously, promoting organic farming and sustainable territorial development, as well as the importance of agriculture to each country and the steps that are being taken to right subsidy inequalities.
