Sustainable Land Management

The next round of expressions of interest in the Welsh Government’s Sustainable Management Scheme opens on 21 May. It is widely open to organisations that operate principally in a rural area and are engaged in agriculture, forestry or other land management, and aims to support collaborative landscape-scale projects delivering action that improves our natural resources in a way that delivers benefits to farm and rural businesses and rural communities. It will also support and facilitate coordination with other schemes to undertake the vital action needed to improve the resilience of farm and rural businesses and rural communities to climate impacts. Partly EU-funded, the scheme closes in 2020.
