        • Food Security

          Fourth in a series of four CAP Basic videos for 'Can EU CAP it?' Project. This 10 minutes video shows that although Europe has succeeded in overcoming food shortages after WWII - mainly as a result of the Common Agricultural Policy - food security is not a given, not even in Europe. Over the coming decade's problems such as air and water pollution, soil degradation together with climate change can threaten future food production. What is the CAP do to help farmers and rural areas to address these problems? What does the CAP do for improve access to nutritious food for poor people? What is Europe's role in ensuring food security in other parts of the world? With interview of Miss Gerda Verburg, chairperson of the Committee on World Food Security.
