From the very foundation of the European Union, agriculture has proved to be at the core of institutional, political and media debate. The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) has become over the years one of the central issues of international debate, covering critical aspects such as rural development, sustainability, climate change, industrial farming or financial aids. The growing complexity of society and the far-reaching challenges that lie ahead require sound analysis and creative ideas that Ecorys can provide to help policy-makers meet and fulfil the expectations and needs of Europeans.
