Agri-Environmental Governance Post-Brexit : Co-production of policy frameworks


The UK’s decision to leave the European Union enabled the most substantial change in the governance of UK agricultural land use since the UK’s incorporation into the EU’s Common Agricultural Policy. The Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) – which is the government department responsible for devising and delivering the post-Brexit ELM – has stated that this new policy will be developed in collaboration with stakeholders.

In order to contribute to the development of this scheme, this project worked with Defra and multiple stakeholders to develop and test a model for ‘co-producing’ the post-Brexit ELM scheme.

This improved understanding of how co-production can be applied to help create more effective government policy and identify ways to collaboratively involve the people and organisations most affected by the policy changes at all stages of the process.
