Image description coming soon

Alison Smith, who led the Agile Initiative’s ‘How do we scale up Nature-based Solutions?’ Sprint, will be part of the ‘Land Use for Net Zero’ (LUNZ) hub.

This consortium, co-led by The James Hutton Institute and the University of Leicester, has received £6.5 million from UKRI to help the four UK administrations address greenhouse gas emissions from land use and agriculture. Alison Smith’s contribution as part of the ECI will build on her work from the Agile Sprint that used FABLE to demonstrate ways in which food and agriculture policy can incorporate nature-based solutions. 

You can find a more detailed news item on the ECI’s website here, with further information on the remit and purpose of the LUNZ and its link to the COP28 declaration on sustainable agriculture.
