This study explored the potential impacts of climate change and globalisation on farming and forestry in the Cotswolds AONB. It identified a number of scenarios and their probability and assesses the consequences for the special features of the AONB. Policies and actions to promote and guide change in farming and forestry are recommended. The research involved analysis of up to date data and literature, workshops with farmers and foresters, and scenario modelling. The farming study was updated in 2015.
