Exploring the role of UK habitat mapping in a new Environmental Land Management Scheme
25th February 2020
This webinar considered the potential of UK habitat mapping as a platform for the new Environmental Land Management Scheme and other ecosystem service and public goods mechanisms. Participants had the opportunity to to:
- Explore the potential for UK habitat mapping to attribute ecosystem function, creating land management plans with farmers and communities that deliver national and international targets in a local context.
- Consider how nature recovery network data being developed through Local Nature Partnerships (England) and Wildlife Trusts might be translated into UK Habitat mapping and made available through technologies such as the Land App.
- Discover possibilities for attributing ecosystem function to UK Habitat codes and how this might be used to develop catchment and a landscape plans for natural capital recovery
Speakers and panelists included: Jonathan Storkey (Rothamsted Research), Bill Butcher (eCountability), Jenny Phelps & Dan Geerah (FWAG South West), Juliet Hynes (Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust) and Tim Hopkin (the Land App).
