Central to our project is the active engagement of stakeholders in the rural economy who frequently interact with these markets. By fostering collaboration and knowledge sharing, we aim to co-create best practices and solutions that directly benefit rural enterprises. This participatory approach will inform local and regional policies, facilitating greater support and engagement of rural enterprises with carbon markets. Our project team is working closely with stakeholders, ensuring their insights and experiences shape our research outcomes.
Through the analysis of collected data and in collaboration with rural stakeholders, we will develop a user-centred toolkit comprising evidence-based solutions to enhance stakeholder engagement with carbon and natural investment markets. By unlocking the potential of the rural economy and supporting the growth of rural enterprises, our toolkit will serve as a valuable resource for stakeholders seeking to navigate these markets successfully.
We firmly believe that by understanding and addressing the needs of rural enterprises, we aim to develop the platform for creating a sustainable and inclusive future for the rural economy.
