Agriculture and land-use
The RSPB campaigns for policies which provide a fair deal for farmers, consumers and wildlife. We want to see sustainable farming which provides safe, healthy, affordable food, protects and enhances the environment and its wildlife, supports diverse and attractive landscapes and contributes to a thriving rural economy.
Agri-environment schemes compensate farmers for the costs of carrying out wildlife-friendly management on their farms.
Farming, land use and nature
Tackling climate change
The changing climate is a major threat to the natural world and one of the key challenges facing agriculture.
Food and the choices we make
Food is a vital part of all our lives. Not only do we need it for physical sustenance, it also plays a vital social role
The UK's uplands landscape we see today is the product of past and current land management activities.
Food and farming
Just as you depend on the UK's farmland for the food you eat every day, so does much of our wildlife.
