Abstract: Aspects of Applied Biology 95, 2009 Measuring and Marketing the Environmental Costs and Benefits of Agricultural Practice The Common Agricultural Policy is the main tool available to the European Unions¿ 27 member states to effect changes on how agriculture is carried out in a sustained, harmonized and transparent way. Three serious challenges face agriculture in the next decade: uncertainty on production due do to the impact ¿ positive and negative ¿ of unavoidable climate change; the more general requirement for production within the sustainable limits of the EU¿s resources, particularly land and water; and the need to contribute, as a global player, to feeding an estimated 9 billion population by 2050. This paper recounts a brief overview of the CAP¿s legacy, presents an analysis of the upcoming challenges, and presents actions showing that the CAP has already begun to move towards accepting these challenges, through existing and future measures ¿ cross compliance and sustainability criteria for biofuel production ¿ that already contribute towards meeting them.
