Locally Led Agri-Environment Schemes
The Locally led agri environment schemes will offer a complementary approach to the action-based model which has been adopted for the broader Green Low-carbon Agri-Environment Scheme (GLAS). They will tie in with the green vision for Irish agriculture as contained in Food Harvest 2020 and as promoted by Bord Bia in the Origin Green campaign.
The schemes will encourage locally-driven solutions to address the many environmental and biodiversity challenges which manifest themselves at local level. Local groups will propose and design projects designed to be a bespoke solution and will be aided by approved planners and other experts. Each project will be overseen by a steering group.
Farmers will be able to join GLAS and a locally led scheme but will not be able to claim for similar actions on the same parcel.
