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. The module is also concerned with the integration of environmental concerns into market management. There will also be an examination of Agenda 2000 and its potential for reform.
