Sustainable Agriculture: show me the money #LPE13

The annual LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) President’s Event takes place today, 5 November, at the headquarters of HSBC in Canary Wharf, East London. The theme of the event is Sustainable Agriculture: Show me the money, and I am speaking on the Valuation of Ecosystem Services. Here are my slides:

The key message is summed up on Slides 10, 11 and 12. We have the potential to embark upon a new paradigm in rural land management but will we step up to the task of the ecosystem entrepreneur?

    What an interesting presentation, Charles: would love to hear how the farmers in the audience responded to the challenge!

    • Thanks Anne. Overall I think the presentation was very well received and led to quite a few questions – but no outright or open challenge. We had already heard about well being health benefits and the scope for farming to up its game commercially from two previous speakers.

      The afternoon debate chaired by Tom Heap also saw us exploring natural capital and agriculture from a number of perspectives. I understand a lot of this material will be available online already or soon

      Kind regards
      Charles
