This Zoom event will focus on the key elements of the Welsh Government’s proposed Sustainable Farming Scheme (SFS). Following an opening panel discussion, attendees will be invited to discuss their thoughts on the above topics in a breakout room, in which a facilitator will make notes of the key topics discussed. A plenary session will follow, in which panellists will respond to the key points raised in the breakout room discussions - this will be the main event. The session will conclude with a Q&A and final conclusions from the Chair.
It will consider the SFS’ objectives, the key strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges relating to the SFS, and the process of policy development since the first consultation in 2018 (Brexit and Our Land). The aim of the session is to produce a response to the current consultation on the SFS, based on the discussion and workshop contributions of attendees.

Anyone with an interest in the development of the SFS is welcome to attend. There will be an opportunity for attendees to discuss their thoughts on the proposal and to contribute to a consultation response which will be developed from notes taken throughout the session.
This event will be of interest to those working in the land management sector and those developing policies associated with this sector.
