Watch the video of our Farm for Scotland's Future webinar to find out more about why farming is crucial to restoring Scotland’s nature and tackling climate change, and why we need a new funding system to help all farmers and crofters make the transition to sustainable farming.
Dear Cabinet Secretary, farming matters to Scotland’s people
Today members of Scottish Environment LINK’s Farm for Scotland’s Future campaign presented Mairi Gougeon, Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and Islands, with a petition calling for a new farm funding system that works for nature, climate, and people.
Letter to Mairi Gougeon following the Climate Change Committee report
On 9 December, 28 organisations wrote to Mairi Gougeon, Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and Islands, following the publication of the Climate Change Committee's ‘Progress in reducing emissions in Scotland’ report.
Farming isn’t the problem. It’s part of the solution.
A growing number of farmers and crofters are already working with nature and climate in mind by keeping their soils healthy, planting trees, and making space for wildlife but these farmers and crofters need more support.
Farming for a world richer in nature
Over the decades, agriculture policy has focussed primarily on food production with nature and the climate side-lined. But with so much agricultural land, there’s enormous potential to redress this and create a more harmonious relationship.
