This report presents an overview of the findings from the Defra-funded ELM Test and Trial: Co-designing long-term agreements for Landscape Recovery. It describes the co-design methodology that the Test and Trial (T&T) used, and explains the co-designed development process used to produce a template head of terms long-term agreement (LTA). This is followed by a detailed summary of the key findings from each milestone of the T&T, before we draw conclusions about the potential viability of an LTA of this kind for Landscape Recovery (LR). Finally, recommendations are made for increasing the likelihood of the uptake and successful implementation of LTAs, especially in lowland, agriculturally productive landscapes. During this T&T, we held eight two-hour workshops, four with non-farming stakeholders and four with farmers1. We also held two-hour group interviews with a total of six farmers, and follow-up and evaluation interviews with six participants. A total of 35 different participants took part in the T&T: 22 stakeholders and 13 farmers. Most participants attended workshops during at least two milestones of the T&T, lending consistency to discussions over the course of the T&T and ensuring that outputs have been co-designed with participants.
