Welsh Countryside Monitoring : Glastir Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (GMEP); and Environment & Rural Affairs Monitoring and Modelling Programme (ERAMMP)

The purpose of GMEP is to monitor the impact on the countryside of the Welsh Government sustainable land management scheme, Glastir. Agriculture covers 81% of Welsh land, and Glastir provides financial support to implement environment-friendly food production practices that improve biodiversity whilst reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. The purpose of ERAMMP is to model, scenario-test and review evidence on the complex environmental and economic consequences for the Welsh countryside of 60 potential agricultural and woodland management interventions.
