The team behind the Flourishing Floodplains project are delight to announce that the video and factsheet outputs are now available.
The CCRI recently completed a series of case studies working with and for farmers as part of the Flourishing Floodplains project.
Funded by Natural England, this five-month project, which started in November 2021, mapped the uptake of Environmental Stewardship and Countryside Stewardship building maintenance options. Once the mapping was complete, analysis of the geographic pattern of uptake was compared to the national character mapping to identify gaps in uptake.
Assessing the impact of Agricultural Transition in Devon, Somerset, Dorset and Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly
The Heart of the South West LEP commissioned CCRI to undertake research in order to understand what, if any, obstacles exist for farmers and land managers to maximise their access to SFI and future ELMs schemes.
This Natural England funded project took place over three months in early 2022, and enabled Chris Short and Dr Phil Staddon to produce a rigorous assessment of the sensitivity of habitats in Britain to climate change. The assessment will be based on consultations with habitat and climate change experts.
The CCRI, alongside our partners, are assessing the viability of establishing a Dynamic Food Procurement System in the Marches region.
Working alongside the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust, this project explores farming on floodplains and seeks to make recommendations on how farmers can transition to more agroecological farming methods.
This project evolved as a farmer-led research initiative to address local evidence gaps identified by farmer partners in Powys wanting to enhance the long-term viability and sustainability of their farms.
This project project focuses on farmers and farm advisors as key, yet often under researched, actors in the context of efforts to implement landscape solutions to the climate and biodiversity emergencies.
