Mainstreaming the Ecosystems Approach

16 Feb 2022

Mainstreaming the Ecosystems Approach A presentation for Birmingham City University. Discusses how to implement the ecosystems approach in the English planning system, with reference to the example of the South Downs National Park. Discusses the challenges and opportunities of ecosystem science and how to translate it into good policy and practice. Recommends looking for “hooks” and “bridges” to justify GI policy – for example, mention of GI policy in the NPPF and National Ecosystems Assessment.
