Defra has paused its consultation on proposals and ideas for its Environmental Land Management scheme (ELMs) which will usher in a new approach of public money paying for public goods, such as nature recovery and natural flood management. Now is an ideal time to reflect on the consultation and a wide range of stakeholder views.

The Natural Capital Committee have warned that a “carbon only” approach to nature-based solutions to deliver net zero risks undermining potential to deliver far wider benefit. ELMs can deliver for both decarbonization and a wide range of additional goods.

  • How can public money be directed through ELMs so that it delivers the biggest public goods ‘bang’ for the public money ‘buck’?
  • What mistakes should we make sure we avoid?
  • How and where can natural flood management be most effectively delivered?
  • How can nature recovery be driven at scale?

Hear from government and its advisors, the agriculture sector, academics, policy and conservation NGOs about their priorities for delivering nature based solutions through ELMs in this free 3-part webinar series.

Please note that registrations for the series will close on 19th May, so book your place early.
