SCDI responds to the National Council of Rural Advisors (NCRA) Public Consultation

The Scottish Government established the National Council of Rural Advisors (NCRA) in July 2017 to provide evidence-based advice to Scottish Ministers on future policies to create a thriving rural economy.

Almost a year on from its launch, the NCRA launched a public consultation. A Rural Conversation: Together We Can, Together We Will sought the views of citizens, communities, businesses and organisations to “help input, shape and develop a series of bold and ambitious recommendations” for politicians and policymakers on how to achieve inclusive economic growth across rural Scotland.

As part of our mission to inform, influence and inspire, SCDI engaged with our rural members, partners and stakeholders to strengthen our response on behalf of our diverse membership from all sectors and all geographies of the Scottish economy.
