ADAS has been commissioned by the Welsh Government to undertake an evaluation of the Sustainable Production Grant (SPG) scheme. The aim of this evaluation is to complete an independent assessment of the scheme’s implementation and impact as part of the Rural Development Programme (RDP) 2014-2020 for Wales as well as identifying key findings that will help form the evidence base to inform decisions on future schemes in Wales. 

As part of this evaluation, ADAS will be gathering information through a web-based survey to gain an understanding of your opinions and experience of the scheme, your SPG project, and its outcomes and impacts. 

It would be much appreciated if you could take part and provide your feedback, thoughts, and opinions.

Survey for applicants who did not receive a Sustainable Production Grant:

This survey is for those who applied at EOI stage and for a variety of reasons didn’t receive a grant (includes those who withdrew).

The survey should typically require 15-20 minutes of your time. Your participation in this research is completely voluntary. However, your views and experiences are really important in order to help inform Welsh Government policies as your input provides a crucial evidence base for future similar schemes.

The survey has been created to be as accessible as possible and an accessibility statement is provided in the survey. If you encounter any issues with accessibility when completing the survey, please let us know. The survey is available in Welsh and English.

If you have any questions or need any further information, please contact Project Manager Yiying Cao. E-mail address: or Telephone number: 07774 435 762.
