Agricultural policy evolution: climate and biodiversity drivers

Activity: Talk, evidence or presentation typesInvited talk


Professor Davy McCracken studies farming and wildlife interactions and has been working on agricultural and agri-environmental policy at a national and international level for over 30 years. He joined SRUC in 1995 and has been Head of SRUC’s Hill & Mountain Research Centre since 2013 and Head of SRUC’s Integrated Land Management Department since 2019. Davy has been involved in providing advice and guidance on policy development to a wide range of governmental and NGO committees over the years and is currently inputting to the development of both Scotland’s new agricultural support policy and future biodiversity strategy. How agricultural support evolves going forward will not only be key to addressing the ongoing climate and biodiversity emergencies but will also be essential to ensuring Scottish farms and crofts can become more resilient to extreme weather events driven by climate change.
