On the 20th of January,  the Landscape Decisions’ researchers published a report entitled : “Making Landscape Decisions to Meet Net Zero Carbon: Pathways that consider ethics, socio-ecological diversity, and landscape functions.”  The research was conducted by a multidisciplinary team, including division member Dr. Eirini Saratsi who leads the AALERT project.

The report, which focuses on three landscapes types  (agricultural, peatland, and forest) offers key recommendations to address some of the contradictions of the current net zero carbon strategy,.

In particular, it highlights the need to ensure the right ecosystem is promoted in the right place, with no single land-use solution prioritised above others. Moreover, the research supports an increase in local and devolved decision-making capabilities as well as further investment in transdisciplinary approaches for landscape management .
