The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the European Union is the first community policy of the union and is being funded by almost half of the European budget. This is why the reform of this policy, especially in the context of the negotiations on the multiannual financial framework (MFF) for the period 2014-2020, is a long and very controversial process.
