The Environmental Land Management Strategic Knowledge Exchange Hub (ELMS-Exchange) brings a systems thinking approach to the challenges and opportunities presented by new environmental policy. Initially in the South West of England, the programme aims to collaborate with key stakeholders in the agricultural industry and the environmental sector to identify knowledge and evidence gaps.
Building partnerships and knowledge exchange projects that tackle the required research and development will support both farmers and policymakers. A key focus of the Hub is to utilise the existing research expertise of the University to help mitigate risks faced by the agricultural industry. Therefore, aiding the provision of evidence bases and guidance to support the implementation of new policy for the environment and food production.
