Agriculture uses 70% of the country’s surface area and directly employs more than 400,000 people. An industry that operates on this scale inevitably has intended as well as unintended effects on the environment. In the near future, the UK’s agri-food sector will need to respond to increasing global demands for food without impacting upon pressured ecosystems – all within the context of rising volatility from climate change.
This report sets out a new approach to these issues. It suggests that rather than the individual farm or land holding, the landscape as a whole is the correct scale on which to tackle the problems of sustainable land use.
