Brief description


This module will cover the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and its interaction with the environment. The aims, objectives and legal structure of the CAP will be examined; as will the growing role of the Farm Structures Policy within the CAP. The module also looks at the range of agri-environment measures that exist within the CAP, particularly the agri-environment regulation 2078 of 1992.
