Agriculture

Europe numbers one million agricultural employers who provide work to over 7 million workers. With 15 million farm holdings, in which over 40 million people work, the agriculture sector makes a vital contribution to healthy nutrition, and still plays a key role in the economic, environmental and social policies in Europe. EFFAT activities in the agriculture sector include promoting a sustainable Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), safeguarding employment and fair pay in rural areas, and further developing social dialogue in order to improve working conditions in this sector.
