Stakeholder Consultation

Environmental Land Management Schemes and Policy for Agroecology

Stakeholder consultation on Environmental Land Management Schemes and Policy for Agroecology
26/08/2019 lwaadmin4
Where and When? September 11th, 2019 Forty Hall Farm, Enfield, London, EN2 9HA 10am-4pm or meet at 8:30 for farm tour.
This policy workshop will bring together farmers, foresters, community food growers, food activists, and public interest groups to develop policy recommendations for key government consultations on the National Food Strategy and the emerging Environmental Land Management Schemes. 
The topics we will be discussing (with approximate timings) are the:
1) Proposed Environmental Land Management Schemes including sustainable farming transition, payments for public goods, landscape-scale ecosystem restoration. 10- 1
2) National Food Strategy and House of Lords enquiry into food poverty 2-3
3) Post EU Markets and the Shared Prosperity Fund 3-4
This is an important opportunity to feed into the Post-Brexit support schemes that may affect land use for decades.
The Landworkers’ Alliance policy team will use the feedback from this workshop to develop policy recommendations, which we will feed into the stakeholder consultations that Defra is engaged in now.
This workshop is sponsored by the EU BOND project- Bringing Organisations and Network Development to Higher Levels in the Farming Sector in Europe.
