Resource explained

The actions we take in the next 10 years to stop ecosystems collapse, recover and regenerate nature and restore people’s health and wellbeing are critical. The Food, Farming and Countryside Commission sets out radical and practical ways for policymakers, business and communities to respond to the challenges in this report. It outlines 15 recommendations focusing on 3 areas; ‘Healthy food is every body’s business’, ‘Farming is a force for change, unleashing a fourth agricultural revolution driven by public values’ and ‘A countryside that works for all, and rural communities are a powerhouse for a fair and green economy.’
