Farmer-led climate change groups

Farmer led groups were established to develop advice and proposals to the Scottish Government on how to cut emissions and tackle climate change as reaffirmed in the recently published Climate Change Plan update.

These groups focussed on the arable, dairy and high nature value (upland farming/crofting) sectors. Additionally, the existing Scottish Pig Industry Leadership Group reported to Scottish Government on behalf of the pig sector. A Suckler Beef Climate Programme Board was also established to take forward the recommendations of the farmer led Suckler Beef Climate Group.
