UN Millennium Campaign calls for urgent Reform of EU Agricultural Policy

At a conference on the impact of the European Union’s (EU) Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) on development, the United Nations Millennium Campaign today called on the EU to urgently reform its agriculture policy, which harms the poor and thwarts global efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). “An unreformed European agriculture policy will continue to hamper the EU’s and other donors’ efforts to eradicate poverty and will perpetuate human suffering,” said Eveline Herfkens, Founder of the UN Millennium Campaign. “It is now time for the EU to deliver on its development promises, reiterated in last week’s MDG Action Plan, and ensure that agricultural policies and subsidies benefit European rural development and the environment in such a way that does not hurt developing countries.”
