Delighted to have led a session at the recent Ecosystem Knowledge Network event: Housing Infrastructure and Natural Capital at the University of Cranfield 30th October 2017.
A key summary of the final discussion session I led will shortly be available on this web site. An important disconnect was spotted between the academic focus on producing new tools and toolkits versus the practitioners' need for vetted tools that can deliver. Is there a need for a tool benchmark perhaps?
