WHAT IS PEATLAND CONNECTIONS?
Valuing our natural capital is key
The core aim of Peatland Connections is to provide something practical, usable, relatable and engaging.
We want to show creatively how a diverse range of stakeholders can be brought together to discuss the synergies and conflicts in land use and management practices and to navigate a way to a better integrated approach to decision making in the area. The “Integrated Land use Decision Tool” we develop will be an example of how we take the concept of Natural Capital and Integrated Land Use from the politician to the land manager.
