In this podcast SAC Principal Consultant Chloe McCulloch talks to Davy McCracken, Head of SRUC’s Hill & Mountain Research Centre, about the challenges and opportunities facing Scottish agricultural policy-development post-Brexit. The discussion focusses on the importance that payments for public goods delivery and maintenance of natural capital are likely to play in the future. Chloe and Davy also consider how existing World Trade Organisation regulations will limit the ability of the UK to restrict the import of agricultural goods from countries with lower environmental or welfare standards.
