G19-046 Headline messages on Farming achieving Net Zero: 11 September 2019
AIC attended the press briefing yesterday launching the NFU report Achieving Net Zero . The event was successful in beginning to better articulate to a more interested external audience (post the UK’s net zero mandate) the commitments made by the Agriculture Industry GHG Action Plans (10 years ago).
AIC has a website dedicated to Brexit providing a wide range of useful information, including regular briefings, meeting reports, sector priorities and links to information from other organisations and stakeholders.
Common Agricultural Policy (CAP)
Future UK agricultural policy outside of the EU is being set in place through the UK Agriculture Bill, which is currently going through Parliament.
Over the next 40 years, the global food system will have to feed more people with less impact. This will mean providing a higher quality diet whilst dealing with greater competition for land, water and energy and the economic and political pressures of globalisation as the climate changes.
Championing the Farmed Environment (CFE)
Championing the Farmed Environment (CFE) encourages farmers and land managers across England to protect and enhance the environmental value of farmland, through environmental measures that sit alongside productive agriculture.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Training and skills development (Continuing Professional Development or CPD) and its contribution towards sustainable growth, the economy and wider society are high on both the agricultural industry and government agenda.
Water Framework Directive
AIC has a well-established active role in helping to reduce the pressure of agricultural nutrients (nitrate and phosphorus) and crop protection products on the water environment.
