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.
IEEP has responded to a call for evidence from the Public Bill Committee, which is considering amendments to the Agriculture Bill put before the UK Parliament by the Government.
This briefing paper outlines some of the limitations of the tracking methodology for assessing the contribution of the CAP budget to climate action and explores possible solutions.
A fresh approach to the system of regulation for farmers and other land managers in England is required post EU-exit to maintain and improve environmental standards. A new delivery model should aim to build a more collaborative and long-term relationship with farmers, strengthen compliance and be adequately funded.
As the UK prepares to leave the EU, the future agricultural policy frameworks in the four administrations of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales are starting to take shape. This briefing provides an overview of the current state of play, focussing on their environmental aspects and ambitions.
