Natural Infrastructure Schemes explained



3 February, 2020

This short explainer is an introduction to the Natural Infrastructure Scheme (NIS), a market concept developed by Green Alliance and the National Trust that would make it possible for farmers and landowners to profit from carrying out activities that improve the environment, and other organisations, like local authorities, utilities and food companies, able to purchase benefits, like flood prevention and soil improvements.

It explains how a NIS would work, why it is needed and what government support is needed to kickstart a NIS market.
