CEP supports ecosystems approach for SNH

CEP wins new project to deliver stakeholder workshop and support ecosystems approach-based land use planning

CEP has been commissioned by Scottish Natural Heritage to develop and deliver a stakeholder led process that will apply the ecosystems approach to collaborative land use and management in the Pentland Hills Regional Park . Working with land use / management stakeholders in the Park's Consultative Forum, CEP's Dr Peter Phillips and Paula Orr will explore the benefits currently provided by the Park, potential drivers of change and practical opportunities to deliver shared values in the long-term. The outputs of this work will inform the forthcoming management plan for the Park.

This project builds on previous work undertaken by CEP in Scotland on land use policy and practice, including the Scottish Land Use Strategy Delivery Evaluation for the Scottish Government and the Evaluation of the Land Use Strategy Forestry Focussed Sub-Regional Pilot Studies for Forestry Commission Scotland.
