This short study updates an earlier analysis of the available land area that might be suitable for planting new woodlands. It finds the amount has increased by 10% to an estimated 2.96 million hectares.
This study provides a baseline best estimate of the potential for property flood resilience (PFR) and current uptake. Potentially around 81,000 properties may benefit from some kind of PFR measure.
A feasibility study into whether manure/slurry exchanges could be an effective tool in helping cut greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture.
This evidence review considers the potential for nitrogen and urease inhibitors to support greenhouse gas emission reductions from fertiliser in Scotland.
This report considers the implications of a shift in forest management through the lens of species diversity.
A Rapid Evidence Assessment of the role of peat in UK growing media and the potential for alternatives.
Research to identify leading international practice in relation to policies and programmes aimed at enabling the uptake of ULEVs in key segments of the economy.

Drawing on Scottish case study evidence, this report presents recommendations for how guidance can be changed to facilitate more adaptive approaches in flood risk management planning.
A rapid increase in the number of electric vehicles on our road is one part of Scotland’s plan to cut emissions from the sector. This report makes recommendations to address the identified barriers to ULEV uptake.
