Landholders play an essential role in responding to the climate and biodiversity crises.
Start with the big picture
Before investing in detailed ecological surveys, you can learn a lot from technology-based assessments of your landholding, using existing data and scientific best practice.
These can give you actionable insights on the natural capital opportunities and risks on your property. Forecasts of project costs, funding grants and financial returns can help you plan.
This same approach can be quickly and easily replicated across clusters of neighbouring properties. Landscape-based projects generally have lower costs and better financing terms, while delivering more benefits to nature and the community.
Having a good overview of your natural capital opportunities will help you focus your scarce time and resources where they will have most impact.
