Representatives from three Sustainable Management Scheme projects met with the Cabinet Secretary for the Environment and Rural Affairs at the Royal Welsh Show.

Partners from the Integrated Welsh Woodlands: Nature Based Solutions, Improving Ecosystem Services and Managing Resources sustainably in the Black Mountains projects  presented their aims and discussed the Sustainable Management Scheme with the Cabinet Secretary.

The variety of activities within the three projects provided a flavour of the different types of projects covered under the scheme, as well as the different approaches to collaboration and involvement needed to ensure maximum benefit to the communities including collaborative landscape scale activity and farmers leading projects to improve and manage natural resources. 

The Sustainable Management scheme supports existing or developing collaborations of farmers, rural businesses, community groups, academic institutes, trusts, foresters and other land managers. Its aim is to create well managed landscapes, delivering benefits to rural communities and agriculture businesses. The scheme complements Glastir, the Sustainable Production Grant and other Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014 – 2020 schemes.
