Cumulus Consultants provides analysis and advice on agri-environment schemes and conservation. We have been involved since the first agri-environment schemes were introduced over 25 years ago and understand the challenges that lie ahead, including the need for greater effectiveness and efficiency through better targeting and collaborative, landscape-scale approaches.
Cumulus undertakes policy research, scheme design and development, costing and payment calculations, and evaluations. We also advise on High Nature Value farming systems and Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) schemes. Alongside a high-level understanding of the policy, practice and science, we have a strong track record of working with farmers and landowners to deliver successful outcomes. The result is well-informed, well-grounded and credible work.
