Understanding market mechanisms: making money from environmental stewardship programs
Webinar 3 in a 3-part series
What are the different opportunities for maximising the value of your farm as an environmental asset from biodiversity to carbon?
In this webinar, we will continue to considering the best ways to access the available carbon in your farm for economic and environmental benefit.
Farmers are set to be major suppliers of Environmental Goods and Services using mechanisms such as the carbon credit market. As these markets grow in volume, scope, and scale, it is important that farmers get fair access. Today we will be looking at the potential for more farmers to gain access to a fairer deal from the Environmental Goods and Services market through knowing and understanding the processes that they can adopt for best practice returns.
Followed by a Q&A session
