Land Managers

Land managers of all kinds play a vital role in adapting to our changing climate in Highland. Climate change adds existing pressures on the land, and we need to manage our land effectively to ensure it can continue to provide goods and services.

Ecosystems in good condition are more resilient to climate change. Adaptation is crucial to ensure we are using water more efficiently in agriculture, managing soils sustainably, restoring our peatland and woodlands and improving the condition and increasing the size of wild spaces.

Forestry Land Scotland have information on how they plan to adapt to the changing climate on their website. NatureScot have information about nature-based solutions and other effective land management practices. Highland Good Food Partnership have information about a local food system that is better for the planet, people and producers.
