GRCC presenting ELMS to ACRE CEOs

This morning (20 May 2020) GRCC is presenting on the ELMS Test and Trial to ACRE CEO network.

The Environmental Land-Management System (ELMS) is being developed by DEFRA as a potential new payment methodology that is planned to replace current Basic Payment Scheme and Countryside Stewardship. Future payments will be focused on delivering public goods and the 25 Year Environment Plan (25 YEP), based on Natural Capital recovery and regenerative agriculture.

The ELMS project is led by the Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group (FWAG) South West in partnership with Ordnance Survey, The Land App, GRCC, CCRI, Upper Thames Catchment Partnership, and ESRI UK.
