The Scottish government has announced £170,000 funding for projects that tackle climate change.

Projects that reduce emissions in agriculture and food production have been selected for the funding, as part of the Knowledge Transfer and Innovation Fund (KTIF).

The KTIF is part of Scotland’s rural budget, as it looks to make agriculture, food and forestry sectors more climate resilient.

Mairi Gougeon, Rural Affairs Secretary, commented: “It is clear that we all need to work together to reach our climate goals. I’m looking forward to seeing how the successful projects will help us do that.

“That’s why investing and supporting knowledge transfer and innovation within our agricultural sector has never been more important.”
