Farmers are now being asked to incorporate sustainable farming objectives to reduce negative environmental impacts. This is coming from state supported legislation (such as the Agriculture Act 2020 and the Environment Act 2021 in the UK) as well as supranational legislation (such as the EU’s Green Deal and The World Bank’s Climate Smart Agriculture - Adaptation Fund and Special Climate Fund).
Key learning objectives:
Understand the multiple farming objectives
Identify examples of farming legislation and incentives
Learn the benefits and drawbacks of private sector support
