DAY 9:

Policy Development – Creating Economic Sustainability within Our Family Farms in Wales

In this panel discussion, host Carwyn Jones is joined by NFU Cymru President Aled Jones and Gareth Parry, Senior Policy and Communications Officer at the FUW to discuss the recent Sustainable Farming Scheme proposals.

Actions to support sustainable production of food, improve biodiversity, and strengthen the rural economy are part of a set of new proposals from Welsh Government. Whilst financial support will be provided for the work farmers do to meet the challenges of the climate and nature emergencies, how do we ensure the balance between environmental protection and economic prosperity are implemented
