Following the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union, the future shape of policies and finance to support agriculture, land management in Wales and rural communities may be decided in Wales.
The Climate Change, Environment and Rural Affairs Committee wanted to explore the principles that should underpin the new Welsh polices that would be needed to replace those currently set by the European Union.
This would help to shape the Committee’s work and inform the approach it takes to developing principles from which new policies can be developed.
