The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is the EU’s oldest and largest policy with multiple impacts on human and planetary health. In its next seven-year period, the CAP will distribute at least 365 billion EUR, or nearly 30% of the EU budget. How this money is spent will shape the human and environmental health impacts of the policy.

EPHA advocates to reinvent the CAP to ensure it contributes to a green recovery and fully supports the transition towards sustainable, future-proof food systems.
