“Enhancing our natural world is necessary and beneficial to all"

The CLA said properly managing assets like woods, soils and rivers would 'deliver benefits to everyone' but landowners are often faced with a lack of options to adequately fund environmental measures.

 

CLA senior policy adviser Jonathan Baker said: “Enhancing our natural world is necessary and beneficial to all. However, it requires substantial investment and we need new business models that make environmental measures a strong businesses choice for farmers and other landowners.

 

“Our seminar is part of an ongoing process. We are looking to identify solutions that incentivise, recognise and reward land management activities that enhance our natural capital for the benefit of society.

 

Investing in Natural Capital is a precursor to the CLA inaugural Rural Business Conference 2030: Unlocking Investment, Unlocking Potential on December 6.
