Climate Change and The Rural Economy

This policy statement draws on the work of the CLA Climate Change Working Group.

It focuses on the potential impact of climate change on owners and managers of rural businesses in England and Wales. It proposes ways to mitigate these impacts and to adapt management practices in order to sustain social and economic activity in the countryside. To support these ideas, we make far-reaching recommendations for policy changes at all levels - European through to local.
