Abstract/Summary

A report to Falklands Conservation. In this report, we consider the potential for a future Falkland Island carbon offsetting scheme. Such a scheme would provide a mechanism by which businesses, organisations and individuals could invest in land‐management and restoration schemes that would deliver greenhouse gas reductions or removals, delivering financial support to farmers and others to adopt sustainable land‐management practices, undertake restoration and increase the extent of ecologically valuable habitats. Overall, we consider that a Falkland Island peatland carbon offsetting scheme would have the potential to deliver significant climate change mitigation, to support habitat conservation, and to generate new sources of income for farmers, other landowners and the Islands as a whole. Any scheme would need to be sustainable and developed in partnership with the camp community and wider Falkland society to ensure that it is appropriate for the culture, economics and environment of the Islands.
