Land, carbon and a just transition – Putting rights and responsibilities into practice
Chaired by Scottish Land Commissioner, Sally Reynolds, the fourth and final session in our 'Natural Capital and Land' series will look at the Commission's Land Rights and Responsibilities Protocol which specifically addresses responsible practice in relation to natural capital and carbon sequestration. The protocol aims to ensure that land ownership, use and management decisions are balanced, seek to achieve wider social, economic, environmental, and cultural benefits, and will not have a detrimental impact.

The panel includes:
- Emma Cooper, Head of Land Rights and Responsibilities at the Scottish Land Commission, who will be giving an overview of the protocol and its aims
- Yvonne Edwards, Forest, Peat & Rural Land Manager, University of Edinburgh, who will be sharing their approach to natural capital management in partnership with communities and others
- Willie McGhee, Acting Director, Community Woodland Association, who will be looking at how community woodland owners can deliver on the protocol for people and nature
- Ben Inglis-Grant, Peatland ACTION Project Officer, Peatland ACTION Fund, Carloway Estate Trust, who will be discussing the opportunities and support available for responsible practice through the Peatland ACTION Fund.
