An online conference discussing key issues for agriculture policy and funding in the UK.

Areas for discussion:

  • Practicalities: the Environmental Land Management (ELM) scheme, payment for public goods in areas like environmental and animal welfare standards, and support during the transition period
  • The impact of any changes on farm finance, further support that might be needed for the sector to reach net-zero emissions and sustainable practices in devolved nations
  • Farm finance and the overall payment process – what lessons can be learnt from the direct payment system under CAP
  • Monitoring and measuring environmental standards and disseminating best practice
  • The evolving regulatory landscape, food security and productivity, and options for creating a system that promotes sustainability, stewardship, and efficient and competitive farming; and
  • Issues for smaller farms and those with limited adaptive capacity.
