Kaley joined IEEP in October 2007. She specializes in European policies which impact on the rural environment and has a good understanding of the implementation and impacts of these policies across the 28 Member States of the European Union. She is an experienced project manager of large multi-partner projects, leading research studies and policy evaluations which focus on the integration of environmental considerations into European and national agricultural and rural development policies. She is actively involved in debates surrounding the future of the CAP and works to develop a longer-term rationale for agricultural policy, including developing policy measures that are oriented towards the delivery of public goods. She also has experience of communications and outreach work.
Prior to joining the Institute she worked at Natural England and the Countryside Agency as a Senior Specialist on land management policy, focusing on rural development and agri-environment policy in the UK and Europe and before that at CPRE as their Rural Policy Officer and as a Research Assistant at Kings College and Wye College, University of London.
Through exploratory scenarios, this report sets out possible directions for agricultural policies and practice after leaving the EU and discusses potential impacts on the rural environment.
A greater shift towards climate-smart agricultural land management is increasingly urgent if the EU is to reach the emissions reductions target set out in response to the Paris Agreement. To do so requires more emphasis on climate within the Common Agricultural Policy and action to reduce the climate footprint of consumer consumption patterns.
