Supporting AE Transition in Scotland

Our Response to the Scottish Government Agriculture Bill consultation

19th December 2022

Supporting Agroecological Transition in Scotland responds to Scottish Government's Agriculture Bill consultation and sets out recommendations for how the Bill can chart a clear course to delivering government's ambitions.

Evidence commissioned by FFCC has shown that widespread transition to agroecological farming by 2030 can help deliver many of the Scottish Government’s agricultural, biodiversity, climate change and rural development ambitions.

Our submission calls for a Scottish Agroecology Working Group to be established and for the Bill to express the outcomes that payment schemes need to achieve, including a a transition to agroecological farming.
