This EPHA policy briefing highlights 11 main ways in which the European Union’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) can deliver for better health.

It has been widely agreed that health should be a pillar of the future CAP, but practically what does this mean? As debates on the reform of the CAP intensify, the briefing addresses this question, identifying the key levers for change to promote better health.

Together with a more detailed online discussion on policy options, this briefing aims to encourage the development of credible, meaningful and comprehensive policy responses to fully realise European agricultural policy’s potential to act as a force for healthy and sustainable living.
