Causes of Inequality CauseImpact The UK is more at the CORE of the EU % of workforce in Agriculture is higher in Poland Less of the public roads are tarred in Poland Collapse of communism in 1989 Use your notes and your memory to work out the impact of these causes (in other words think at a level 2 and maybe level 1 or ‘C grade and higher’ to fill the table)
How the EU tries to reduce inequalities EU StrategyIntended Outcomes European Regional development Fund The European Social fund The Cohesion Fund Common agricultural Policy (CAP) Urban II Fund Use the resources to work out the intended impact of these startegies (in other words think at a level 2 and maybe level 1 or ‘C grade and higher’ to fill the table
