One area we’re exploring in tests and trials is the role that innovative payment mechanisms might play in future environmental land management schemes. In this post we share what we’ve learned about reverse auctions so far in tests and trials.
Louise Maguire leads the Tests and Trials team within Environmental Land Management.
Louise’s team develop and manage tests and trials working with farmers and land managers to co-design Environmental Land Management, providing important evidence to help us design policy and how it is delivered
We’re happy to share that we are taking forward 31 proposals to develop into new tests and trials. In this post, we'll give an overview.
One of the areas we’re looking at is how much advice and guidance farmers and land managers might need in our new schemes. We’ve got 43 tests and trials exploring this and in this post we’ll share the latest findings.
The Future Farming Countryside Programme will co-design the future of farming with farmers. We’re working with farmers to test their ideas until we have a format that works. This post explains our 'Test and Trial' approach. As we go along, we learn what works, what doesn’t and how we can improve.
