CAP In Our Lives
The EU-funded project “CAP In Our Lives” is implemented for a duration of 12 months, from September 2022 to August 2023 and is managed by Aspon Consulting.
The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is one of the European Union's (EU) most important and longest-lasting policies and is becoming vital to promoting a prosperous and sustainable future for the multi-faceted agricultural sector. With a substantial influence on various economic, social and environmental aspects, effective policy-making under the CAP plays a key role in supporting the EU's agricultural sector, rural development and ensuring sustainable agricultural growth, while enhancing the sector's competitiveness. Through the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the EU promotes a constructive relationship between agriculture and society and between Europe and its farmers, creating a policy that applies to all EU countries and citizens and benefits them in various ways.
The activities to be carried out in the framework of this information campaign with the main objective of raising public awareness of the fact that the CAP benefits all EU citizens are designed around three main pillars/specific objectives as listed below:
● Effective engagement of relevant stakeholders in different agricultural sectors in Cyprus and raising awareness on the impact of the CAP in supporting agriculture and sustainable rural development, taking into account the specificities of the sector.
● Focus on raising awareness among youth on the importance of agriculture and the ways in which the CAP contributes to the sustainable development of agriculture in the EU, providing support to young farmers, promoting healthy nutrition, as well as addressing challenges such as food security, climate change and environmental concerns.
● Carry out actions that contribute to raising public awareness of the important impacts achieved through the CAP, providing evidence-based information on the impact and relevance of EU support to agriculture and rural development, focusing on the economic, environmental and social dimensions of agriculture and how these are enhanced through effective policy making.
