On 16 December 2013, the Agriculture Ministers of the EU formally adopted the four Basic Regulations for the reformed Common Agriculture Policy (CAP), as well as the Transition Rules for 2014. This follows on the approval of these Regulations by the European Parliament on 20 November.
Since EPHA began working on farming policy we have been advocating for the CPA to include access to healthy diets, improve policy coherence and promote sustainable production and consumption as part of a coherent strategy to address inequalities in health.
We have expressed our views on the reform and its results in our articles here:
