Prof Mark Reed, former Newcastle N8 AgriFood Chair is now Director of the Thriving Natural Capital Challenge Centre at Scotland’s Rural College. He continues to collaborate with us on many levels and as an output of our launch week, produced this policy brief in collaboration with iCASP and the Global Food Security funded Resilient Dairy Landscapes project. It outlines the policy action needed to stimulate demand for and supply of projects for new ecosystem markets. Ecosystem markets have the potential to fund significant reductions in greenhouse gases from the land use sector, while providing new income streams for a sector that has in some areas been significantly impacted by Covid-19. The brief outlines long term policy messages as well as recommendations for the next year, based on research evidenced in the brief.
