What are the predicted changes in climate for the Cheviot Hills?
In 2008, a scoping study was undertaken by Royal Haskoning to identify what the climate change predictions were for the Cheviot Hills, based on the Environment Agency EARWIG model.
<a href="http://www.cheviotfutures.co.uk">A summary of this report is available here</a>

We have compiled a summary of UK Climate Projections (UKCP09) data as relating to the Cheviot Hills landscape. This summary is available within the 'Media' section of the website - see the 'Contact Us' page for more details.


Are there general adaptation principles that can be applied to most farm holdings?
Yes.
Most farm holdings can make small adaptations that are relatively simple and easy to implement that will improve their resilience to the effects of climate change.

For example, looking for locations where strategic tree or hedgerow planting can assist with wind erosion, shade or shelter; improving the efficiency of water management; and applying nutrient management principles all have benfits to climate change resilience and the sustainability of the farm business.

Assistance is available through the Cheviot Futures Farm Resilience Planning approach.
