Climate Resilience Catchments Project

Led by Westcountry Rivers Trust, this project investigated nature-based responses to climate change in our local rivers and landscape.

 

The result is a set of multi-layered maps that show the current condition of the landscape, identify where the vulnerabilities are located, and highlight where mitigation measures could be placed for maximum benefit.

 

This will help us develop changes to land management, farming practices and re-wilding to improve carbon capture and increase our resilience to floods and droughts. 

This fascinating short film below shows how our local rivers and landscape can reduce climate change extremes across our remote corner of North Cornwall. It explains how nature-based solutions can protect us from intense but more sporadic rainfall creating floods and drought - and how we can trap more carbon in our soils and vegetation.
