I have supported the Sustainable Uplands Project that has seen a collaboration of Universities (including Leeds, Aberdeen & Durham) take an academic view of the management of the uplands which has been funded by Defra's Rural Economy & Land Use (RELU) Programme . The work is now being published and has received a range of press coverage over the last few days. See the articles in: The Scotsman, The Yorkshire Post, The Press & Journal and Bioscience Technology.
Is this approach possible and would you support it?
This project will also be featuring as part of the Carbon in the Uplands conference that I am organising with the Southern Uplands Partnership and the Crichton Carbon Centre, Dumfries that will be held in Moffat 20-21 April 2010. More details will follow.
