DAERA Consultation on Northern Ireland Future Agricultural Policy Framework

To develop a truly sustainable food and farming system, where farmers work with nature to produce high quality nutritious food, we need to move out of our current siloed approach and recognise numerous inter-related problems that need to be addressed. These include volatility in farm gate prices, public health crises, poor diets, food poverty, food waste and environmental degradation. These issues cannot be solved purely through the reform of any one policy, but instead rely on coherence across different areas, including health, environment, public procurement, agriculture, welfare and education.
