Climate Change Adaptation Drought & High Temperatures

There are increasing concerns about the occurrence of higher temperature and drought conditions in Scotland. Projections for Scotland indicate that even under a low emissions pathway, there will be a 50% chance of each summer being hotter than that of 2018. These conditions can are already having an impact on soil, crop and livestock health, as well as water availability and wildfire occurrence. It is important that farm businesses actively consider climate change adaptation to minimise potential risks and where possible benefit from any opportunities that may present themselves.
