Is grassland our salvation for carbon capture and nature recovery?
Time: 12.15pm - 1.15pm
A session looking at future land use and whether carbon sequestration in sheep-grazed grassland can achieve as much as mass forestry and other suggested alternatives. What will the UK look like if policymakers continue to pursue tree planting targets and/or rewilding ambitions? Will there be space for sheep and, if not, what are the implications for climate change, nature recovery and rural communities? This seminar will consider sheep and grassland in the positive light they deserve.
Chairman: John Lloyd, NSA.
Speakers: Robin Pakeman, James Hutton Institute; Sarah Wynn, Adas, John Pawsey, Suffolk sheep and arable farmer.
