Welsh Government White Paper on Agriculture, published 16 December 2020.

The Welsh Government's White Paper on Agriculture, 16 December 2020, is the next stage following the Sustainable Farming & Our Land Consultation which took place in 2019. The 'Paper outlines the essential structure for a new scheme to support Welsh farming to replace the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). The scheme is set formally to introduce the concept of "delivery for public good." The Consultation period ends in March 2021. CLA Cymru urges members to respond directly and independently to the consultation and/or to contribute to our own feedback into the process which is ongoing in addition to a formal response from ourselves. Our own statement responding to the Consultation can be found in the CLA Cymru news-section.

The attached document represents a digest of the Consultation document - it includes links to the full document and to the Welsh Government's press release which launched the process.
