Agricultural policy is going through a dramatic change, any agreement reached at COP26 will intensify the need for governments to reduce their carbon footprints and tackle climate change. In this webinar we’ll hear more about how future agriculture policies might change and how this will impact farmers from SRUC’s leading experts – Steven Thompson and Davy McCracken.
The physical threat of climate change will hit farms hard. The increased likelihood of storms, drought and intense rainfall could physically damage farm soils as well as infrastructure and force management changes. However not only will the physical impacts of climate change effect farms the change in policy towards more climate friendly practices will also change the way farmers farm. Adapting to the whole range of physical and policy changes coming over the next 10-20 years will require a huge shift in how we think about farming in the 21st century.
