Article 39.1 of the treaty sets out the CAP`s objectives: to increase productivity through technical progress and to make the best use of factors of production (for example. B work); Ensure a fair standard of living for farming communities; stabilizing markets Ensure stock availability and impose fair prices.  Article 39.2 states that policy makers must take into account three factors: the circumstances of each agricultural activity due to the social structure of farming communities and inequalities between richer and poorer regions; the need to act gradually to give agriculture sufficient time to adapt; and remember that agriculture was heavily integrated into the economy of the other part of the economy.  In the early hours of Tuesday 21 July 2020, at around 5:30 a.m., after four days and four nights of negotiations, the Heads of State and Government of the European Council reached agreement on both the Next Generation European Recovery Instrument and the Multi-Year Financial Framework (MFF) for the period 2021-2027. The agreement between 27 heads of state and government, who entered into negotiations with very divergent positions, was an astonishing political achievement. And while the inevitable compromises have been accompanied by regret, it is extraordinary that each leader has expressed satisfaction with the final outcome. In a statement issued after a two-and-a-half-day meeting of EU agriculture ministers in Luxembourg, the EU Council said that the agreement on the overall direction of the CAP after 2020 “contains a number of strong commitments from Member States for greater environmental ambition” but also “the flexibility needed for Member States to achieve environmental objectives”. Created in 1962, the EU`s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is a partnership between agriculture and society, as well as between Europe and its farmers. It aims to: during this period, it has not gone far enough to support or promote sustainable practices and has created serious problems. It has promoted a model of agriculture that harms the environment – contributing to climate change, biodiversity loss, soil erosion and water pollution – and has encouraged factory-style agriculture at the expense of employment for farmers and rural workers. Increased imports of cheap, socially produced raw materials and cheap exports to the world`s south are taking the effects of the CAP farther than within the EU itself.
