New Assignment – The Implications of Brexit for Agriculture and Land Use in Wales

Following the vote to leave the European Union there are a number of opportunities and challenges relating to agricultural policy. The Welsh Government are currently exploring the different scenarios that could occur as a result of Brexit. The Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Rural Affairs has asked the Public Policy Institute for Wales (PPIW) to sense check these scenarios, provide analysis of their implications on rural areas and identify policy responses.

Of particular interest are the opportunities for land use, and how livelihoods might be affected by changes in policy and subsidy.

The report will be written by Professor Janet Dwyer of the Countryside and Community Research Institute.

For more information, please contact the PPIW lead, Emyr Williams (
