Q & A Discussion Panel Report – Day Three

Q & A panel on day three of the conference

Question One

Is there a plan for an England nature map, a grand vision for the whole of the country? (Simon Bates, Tamar Valley)

Jean Spencer, Anglian Water: That’s a really good question, I think their should be. Interesting to think how we’d do that. maybe organisations like ourselves could work with AONBs, Wildlife Trusts.  One way to think about that is to start not at the national scale but at the local scale bringing all the relevant organisations together at a catchment level, to map the biodiversity in that catchment. Maybe we could think about doing this in just one one area initially, demonstrate it works, then role it out.

Rob Stoneman, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust: The Wildlife Trusts have but together a living landscapes map for every region in each country, which is on our website. Continue reading

Michael Sydney, Surrey Hills AONB, reports back from Workshop 4 – Resources for Landscape Projects

Resources for Landscape Projects Workshop from Landscapes for Life on Vimeo.

Michael Sydney, Surrey Hills AONB, reports back from the Resources for Landscape Projects Workshop which discussed – How can AONB partnerships ensure that the work they are doing to deliver ecosystem services on a landscape scale is properly resourced both financially and timewise (staff/members/volunteers).
Richard Clarke also shared the other key points from the workshop –

  • 1 – Clarity around restricted and unrestricted income.
  • 2- Partnerships will continue to be vital, particularly as resources become tighter.

Quote from Rob Stowman, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust- “Important to have ‘oven-ready products’; i.e. – things rear to go…”

  • 3 – AONBs already are willing to take risks to secure additional funding.  Whilst local authority partners are increasingly becoming risk averse.  A need to install confidence in authorities.
  • 4 – Working with local authorities can be a double edged sword, but we shouldn’t under estimate the importance in providing cash-flow.
