Case Study of Practical Measures at a Landscape Scale to Provide for Adaptation of Biodiversity and Ecosystems to Climate Change: Cambrian Mountains Initiative - WC0759

The main aims of this project are:
• To produce a case study that demonstrates the application of theoretical models and climate change adaptation principles in the landscape and assesses the practicality and value of proposed landscape scale adaptation measures on the basis of practical experience.
• To provide guidance for policy makers, planners and land managers to help them to plan, create, maintain and adaptively manage landscapes that will enable biodiversity to adapt to climate change.
• To provide a short Best Practice Guidance and short Policy Guidance Note. The case study will form the final report, but key elements must be drawn out to produce a short document of stand-alone Best Practice Guidance and a short Policy Guidance Note that will help inform policy customers of the main issues and identify evidence gaps and further research requirements.
The aims of this project are to produce the case study, best practice guidance and Policy Guidance Note.
