From system shock to system change – regenerative opportunities

The coming decade will be one of transitions. How the world responds to COVID-19, particularly how governments spend their trillions, will shape humanity's destiny. This paper explores some of the key dynamics that lie at the heart of these transitions.

Wildfires, greenhouse gas emissions and climate change

Around the world, there is a growing body of evidence that suggests that carbon produced by wildfires is making a significant contribution to the volume of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere, where it contributes to climate change.

Atmospheric carbon drawdown – a global imperative

Carbon sequestration is the general term used for the capture and long-term storage of carbon dioxide. This paper argues that a varied and tailored approach is likely to produce the most productive and the most resilient overall solution.

Regenerating our landscapes

This paper seeks to provide a short and simple description of how carbon, water, nutrients, organic matter and microbes interact to underpin the health of soils.

Hydraulic fracturing – is industry standard practice the best practice? The case for waterless fracking

Waterless fracking, where alternative fluids are used to provide the hydraulic energy to fracture rock and release natural gas, is a relatively recent innovation designed to make fracking a more safe and efficient process.
