How is the eu trying to reduce inequalities

  1. 1. How is the EU trying to reduce inequalities?<br />Policies to reduce different levels of development in the European Union (EU)<br />
  2. 2. Political steps to reduce inequalities are:<br />1. The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP)<br />This includes a system of subsidies (payments) paid to EU farmers to grow certain products. When world food prices are low, the EU buys the produce and guarantees the farmers a reasonable income. <br />A high import tax is placed on foreign produce from outside the EU. Aim is for people to buy from the EU.<br />All of these things improve the quality of life for farmers in EU<br />
  3. 3. 2. Urban Community Initiative<br />Many Europeans live on urban areas. More opportunities, etc. BUT, all cities have problem areas.<br />So, money is given to certain EU cities to create jobs, reduce crime and increase the area of green space. <br />SUSTAINABLE development through regeneration. E.g. new ring road. Reduces traffic congestion through town, cutting pollution levels and adding cycle paths too.<br />
  4. 4. 3. Structural funds<br />These support poorer regions of Europe and improve employment opportunities, reduce discrimination and improve transport links. <br />Regions whose GDP is less than 75% of the EU average are targeted. The aim is to get all members of the EU to a similar level of development. (reducing inequalities)<br />
