Eat this to save the world! The most sustainable foods – from seaweed to venison 30/06/2021

https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2021/jun/29/eat-this-to-save-the-world-the-most-sustainable-foods-from-seaweed-to-venison?fbclid=IwAR3LVXWAk7zdVCYvNRMaoN1iEslS1u7pnOKTaIwq65_oZoIFojyDEiawYjA

A misleading headline, but a good read.

Here are some key takeaways, which we have also encountered from our work in the food and drink sector. Although they might seem obvious, they are still worth repeating:
- It is almost always not what we eat but the process and journey food takes that determines its impact
- Consider seasonality - You can't always eat what you want, when you want
- More fruit, veg and pulses grown in the UK, to feed the UK
- Short supply chains
- More seaweed!
- It's complicated. No silver bullets, no single solution. Take the time to think, read, and listen

Any other key takeaways or thoughts?

Rural Wales - Evidence Base Research - Miller Research UK 27/05/2021

What does the future hold for rural Wales?

Whatever the answer, any future action, strategy, and support offered must be based on a solid evidence base.

We've been working with the Welsh Government at this critical juncture for Wales, as it transitions away from The European Rural Development Programme, funding and framework, towards alternative, post-Brexit arrangements.

We have not only evaluated key services in rural development but also identified gaps in current understanding and research, to help inform future projects and research.

What is agroforestry?
A nice explainer and set of case studies of how tree planting can be incorporated into food production.
https://www.facebook.com/soilassociation/posts/10158988728318816

Agroforestry and other agroecology must be a big part of the UK's agricultural future. They closely align with the Agriculture Bill's aim that,
'farmers and land managers who provide the greatest environmental benefits will secure the largest rewards’.

But can agroecology effectively address the dilemma of producing adequate quantities of food whilst protecting biodiversity and natural resources, while also mitigating climate change? The Ten Years for Agroecology in Europe project, led by top scientific experts, suggests it is absolutely doable at scale.

Covid-19: Carers 'worn out' by virus and need services back 01/11/2020

Public consultation on Coronavirus Act 2020 and social care in Wales.

"Before the pandemic anyone requiring care, and carers themselves, had the legal right to have their needs assessed by local authorities.

Those rights were suspended when the first lockdown was imposed in Wales.

The consultation asks whether that measure continues, or is suspended. It closes on Monday."

We have more than 15 years experience of conducting social and economic research, consultation and evaluation for clients across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Key areas include health, education, sustainable economies and rural issues. We are particularly interested in understanding the barriers to effective cohesion in communities across the UK and this forms a growing area of work for the company, as well as social and economic sustainability.

If you think we might be able to work together on something, we would love to hear from you, so get in touch.
