How does Welsh Government propose to evaluate the Habitat Wales scheme?

Answered by Minister for Rural Affairs and North Wales, and Trefnydd | Answered on 23/02/2024

The Environment and Rural Affairs Monitoring & Modelling Programme (ERAMMP) contract - ERAMMP Informing, Monitoring and Evaluating Sustainable Land Management provides long-term monitoring of natural resources in Wales. This includes monitoring the long-term impacts of the Glastir Scheme, the Habitat Wales Scheme and the proposed Sustainable Farming Scheme, as well as providing wider national (non-scheme) trends of natural resources. ERAMMP is acknowledged across the UK and internationally as an exemplar in integrated environmental monitoring and is supported by our farmers, their Unions and environmental NGO’s.
