Scotland’s Biennial Land Use and the Environment Conference XII

Scotland’s Biennial Land Use and the Environment Conference XII - Rewarding the Delivery of Public Goods: How to Achieve this in Practice?

Date: 28-29 November, 2018

Location: Our Dynamic Earth, Holyrood Road, Edinburgh

Although Brexit is a huge challenge, it is also a huge opportunity to develop something different with regard to the effective delivery of environmental public goods in the future. This conference will seek to help inform and shape the debate about how best to reward farmers, foresters and other land managers for delivering public goods from their land management practices. In particular it will provide a forum to help develop thinking of practical implementation on the ground and what that means for policy development.

This conference will consist of platform presentations and posters under the following themes:

Theme 1: What type of environmental public goods should be prioritised for delivery by land managers in the future?

Theme 2: How can land managers be encouraged and helped to deliver those public goods effectively?

Theme 3: What mechanisms are available for rewarding land managers for the provision of public goods?

Panel Debate: What changes in policy or governance are required to reward land managers for the delivery of environmental public goods in a cost-effective and transparent way.
