Nourish Scotland - Agriculture Bill consultation workshops
31 October 2022, Starts: 18:00, Ends: 20:00
Monday 31 October 2022 6.00 - 8.00 online
Farmers in Scotland are currently receiving financial support from the government each year. The agricultural budget amounts to over half a billion pounds annually – this is a significant investment for the public purse.
The way that the money is distributed to farmers is complicated. The system is designed in such a way that the largest businesses, with the largest land areas get the most financial support – not those who are most in need of the income. Only a small proportion of the budget is directed at protecting nature or mitigating climate change.
The Scottish Government are trying to improve on the former system, and are currently consulting on a new Agriculture Bill, which is aiming to: “support farmer and crofters to ensure their economic sustainability as we deal with the twin global emergencies of climate change and biodiversity whilst also continuing to produce high-quality food.”
. . . .
Nourish Scotland is working with Scottish Environment LINK, the Scottish Government and interested organisations across Scotland to run a series of workshops to enable a wide range of people to have their say.
