3º - Web Task Unit 6

Hello,

Deadline for this work is next Tuesday 27 January. You have to turn it in through Edmodo.


UNIT 6. THE PRIMARY SECTOR

Web task 1: European agricultural policy

Introduction

The European Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), one of the original pillars of the European Community, is a European common system of quotas and prices set up to increase productivity in the agricultural sector, to ensure a standard of living for the agricultural population, to secure availability of supplies and to provide European consumers with food at reasonable prices. This system led to the overproduction of ‘butter mountains’ and ‘wine and milk lakes’ of the 1980s, with farmers being paid to produce goods for which there was no market.
