2012-13 event series begins with ‘Integrated Accounting for Land-use’ workshop

Please note this workshop has been postponed until Feb 2013. This is due to Forestry Commission staff being occupied with the Chalara outbreak in Ash trees. You may still register and we will notify participants as soon as a new date is booked.

ICARB is holding a series of workshops to determine the rules that should be used to account for carbon in different sectors. Four events, looking at land-use, energy, communities and tourism, will build up to the 5th International Conference on Carbon Accounting, hosted by ICARB in 2013.

Carbon Accounting and Land-use: is it possible to have an integrated land-use planning tool for Scotland?

Feb 2013 (time and date tbc), Forestry Commission Scotland, Silvan House, 231 Corstorphine Road, Edinburgh EH12 7AT

What would an integrated land-use planning tool for Scotland look like? Discussions will be fielded from a range of stakeholders covering a variety of methods in use. We will tackle what the basic aims of a common planning tool should be, how these aims could be achieved, and a propose a plan of action.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own issues and examples for discussion and a report of this workshop will be taken forward to the International Conference on Carbon Accounting in 2013.

The workshop will be informed by a pre-workshop questionnaire contributed to by sectoral experts.

Attendance is free but participants must register online using this link where you can also contribute to our survey.

ICARB will also shortly be announcing full details of the next event in our 2012-13 event series. “Framing Scottish Standards for the carbon accounting of energy generation technologies” will take place on 21 Nov 2012. Click here for more details and to register.
