THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will bring together key stakeholders to discuss the future opportunities and challenges for UK agriculture post-Brexit and beyond the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP).
Delegates will discuss the Government’s plans to reform the payments model by incentivising farmers to carry out ‘public goods’ in order to receive future payments, as outlined in the 25 Year Environment Plan. They will also consider the criteria such as environmental enhancement, animal welfare, increasing productivity and protecting soil health, referred to in the Health and Harmony: the future for food, farming and the environment in a Green Brexit consultation.
Further sessions discuss agricultural policy in the devolved nations following the Government analysis on returning EU powers, which highlighted agricultural support amongst the 24 policy areas which would be temporarily retained by Westminster.
