Agriculture and Rural Development - Winter: 2011


European agriculture is a key sector of the European economy. And the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is one of the major European policies. The CAP has been reformed continually since its creation. It has been adapted to respond to the challenges of time. Today's CAP follows on from the 2003 reform, following on from Agenda 2000. In the future, agricultural techniques must adapt to the effects of climate change. More must be produced, with less. The scarcity of natural resources must be managed. Consumers must also be offered ever safer, healthier and more varied products. In order to illustrate these new challenges in European Agriculture, the Audiovisual Services of the EC has produced a series of stockshots on Agriculture and Rural Development. The first three of a series of four stockshots were released in 2010. The fourth in the series, 'Winter 2011', will be released on 01/03/2011 and covers: 1. LIVESTOCK 1.1. Farm: Sweden 1.2.
