Peatland Connections: Building Prosperity
02 October 2018, 11:30 - 04 October 2018, 16:30 ( Add to calendar )
What constitutes as a public benefit? How do we account for public benefits and/or reward those who provide them? How does provision of public benefit impact land management decision making? These are some of the questions we will be addressing – in the context of peatland management – at this year’s Peatland Connections: Building Prosperity Conference from the IUCN UK Peatland Programme, in partnership with Scottish Natural Heritage and Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park Authority.
With public benefit in mind, over the two and half days (2nd – 4th October) we will be exploring innovative solutions to commonly faced issues around sustainable land management that delivers for people and the environment. We will also be investigating how healthy peatlands can support prosperous businesses and communities, whilst also receiving an update on the scientific findings of the Commission of Inquiry Update. For more information a draft agenda can be downloaded here.
