An Taisce has responded to the draft Environmental Analysis Report (incorporating a Strategic Environmental Assessment and an Appropriate Assessment) of the proposed Food Wise 2025 National Agri-Food strategy, as issued by the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and the Marine.

In summary, our considered view of the draft Environmental Analysis Report is that it is fundamentally flawed and unfit for purpose. It should be withdrawn and completely redone on a properly informed basis.
