Farming and other land uses in the uplands are extremely challenging, financially marginal, and need to respond to challenges such as climate change, livestock diseases and changing societal demands. This project will examine how beef cattle and sheep farmers in upland areas can improve their resilience to environmental, economic, and social change, and what impact their actions to improve resilience will have on food supplies, natural resources and society.
