Discussion Paper on Carbon-Rich Soils

This discussion paper has been published by the Scottish Government at the same time as the announcement of research funding of £200,000 (£50,000 to SNH and £150,000 to RSPB) that derives from a fine on Exxon for emission statements under Emission Trading Scheme.

The funding will be used to research peatland restoration.  SNH are developing an inventory of Scotland's carbon-rich soils and RSPB are continuing their restoration work at Forsinard.

The paper has been prepared by the Scottish Government with support from SNH, SEPA & FCS.  It is intended for discussion and it appears likely that it will be developed in the future.  For further details and a link to the discussion paper, see the Forum's website.
