The issues and conflicts facing our countryside today are perhaps thrown into sharpest relief in the

UK‟s upland environment: leisure, public perception, farming, food, biodiversity, climate change and

forestry issues are all making a clear impact, creating new demands and opportunities for our
countryside.

Just as there have been numerous reports concerning the key impacts discussed above, so the
uplands has had its fair share of reports: these include High Ground, High Potential (Commission
Rural Communities), High Hopes (CLA), Uplands Policy Review (Defra), Farming in the Uplands
(Environment Food & Rural Affairs) and Vital Uplands‟ (Natural England).

“The EU favours sustainable, productive and competitive agriculture -
even in regions where conditions are difficult”
