This project aims to identify the mechanism whereby emerging natural capital investment markets can contribute to a successful rural economy.
Thie outcomes of this project will be achieved by firstly examining how rural enterprises navigate voluntary carbon and other natural capital investment markets and how they overcome and exploit potential limitations and barriers. Secondly, by identifying priorities related to the enterprise and innovation potential of natural capital investment markets and the resources required to achieve this. Through deliverables such as infographics and animations, the project will help to inform local and regional policies and support rural enterprises’ engagement with carbon markets.
