The events provide an opportunity for farmers to discuss issues around preparing for a resilient future that considers livelihoods, the environment and climate adaptation, and culture; and have their say on future direction.

Views will be fed in to the Future Agricultural Policy portfolio and climate change action plans.

Previous Workshops in Omagh, Ballymoney and Ballynahinch have been well attended in each area by farmers of all ages from a wide range of farm types provided valuable insight and data.
