WG 1 - Urban Agriculture definitions and Common Agricultural Policy
The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) presents the most important part of the EU budget. In its last steps of modification the CAP has developed to be an instrument that also stimulates environmental and territorial qualities. This direction is to be continued in the next modification that will take place for 2014. Environmental, territorial and societal services guaranteed by agriculture are of special importance where a large number of people can profit from them: in urban areas. For this reason a common vision of UA in Europe has to be developed to enable its placement in the CAP funding schemes. WG 1 will work on a definition of UA in Europe as a first step and elaborate a dictionary of UA that not only provides a common vocabulary but will set out the special qualities UA can provide to sustainable development.
