BackgroundWales is proposing a fundamental, more outcome-orientated, direction to post-CAP policy, with a single scheme offering payments to farmers. This project intends to inform the development of that measure by exploring the possibilities/limitations of a RBPS approach. It will try to look at the range of public goods, incl. biodiversity, water flow and quality, archaeology, fire risk management, carbon sequestration and storage, public access etc.
