Brexit - what does it mean for the environment, fisheries and agriculture

Posted on 20 March 2017

Policy experts and sectoral stakeholders invited to discuss opportunities and challenges

Researchers from the Environment Department, the Stockholm Environment Institute and the York Environmental Sustainability Institute will be hosting a workshop at the University of York on Wednesday the 22nd of March 2017 to discuss the future opportunities and challenges that Brexit presents for UK/EU Environment, Fisheries and Agricultural Land Management sectors and policy. 

Agriculture, Fisheries and Environment need to stay high up on the Government agenda as the Brexit negotiations proceed, as they are all critically important issues to address with regards to ensuring the sustainability of these sectors and the future prosperity of the UK.

The workshop will bring together experts and stakeholders from the various sectors, and the information gathered from these consultations will be used to develop policy briefs that will directly inform policy-makers about future governance options and their implications.
