In the 25 Year Environment Plan we committed to considering delivery options for the Nature Recovery Network over the next two years, as we develop and pilot our new environmental land management scheme and investigate the use of other new and innovative funding mechanisms.

Funding for collaborative projects, incentivising land managers to work together to secure environmental improvements at landscape and catchment level, was identified as a potential element of the future scheme.
