Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation
For over forty years, Welsh agriculture, the landscapes and environment shaped by it, and the rural communities that depend on it, have been supported by policies set at a European level, albeit with a degree of local adjustment.
Following the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union, the Climate Change, Environment and Rural Affairs Committee carried out an inquiry into the future shape of policies and funding to support agriculture, land management and rural communities which would be decided in Wales.
The Committee wanted to identify the principles that should underpin the new Welsh polices that would be needed to replace those currently set by the European Union.
