What is RBAPS?  Results-based agri-environment payment schemes are schemes where farmers and land managers receive payments for delivering a specific environmental result or outcome. These results-based approaches offer farmers the flexibility to use their knowledge and experience to manage the land in a way that benefits both biodiversity alongside their normal farming operations. This pilot scheme is one of only two projects funded by the EU, in response to a call from the European Commission to trial the results-based approach.  Have a look at the RBAPS Newsletter for information on this exciting project.
