Climate Change and the European Countryside: Impacts on Land Management and Response Strategies

This report, part of the wider CLIO (Climate Impacts and Options) project, is based on a detailed study of 21 rural estates, representing a board range of biogeographical regions across Europe.

It documents the different ways in which climate change is already affecting each estate, considers strategies to adapt to the changes and looks at ways in which rural estates can use carbon management to mitigate climate change and considers necessary policy actions. Undertaken by the CLA and the University of East Anglia's climate change research unit.
