The Common Agricultural Policy of the EU influences the agriculture in production but also in different functions as there are the function of resource protection, recreation, landscape diversity and spatial structuring. Especially in a comparison of regions on both side of the former Iron Curtain the effects of a different agricultural policy can be observed, illustrated on the example of Austria/Hungary. Austria concentrates on the rural development with already 65% of the subsidies in the second pillar of the CAP with a lot of different measures. The largest parts of it go to the environmental measures and to the measures for less favoured areas.
