Sustainable Upland Management for Multiple Benefits

  • Start date: 01 August 2004
  • End date: 31 July 2005

The purpose of this research is to develop a framework that can help people find new ways to detect and harness rural change to enhance environmental, economic and social sustainability. There are a wide range of (sometimes conflicting) visions for a sustainable future held by those who visit or live and work in the Peak District National Park (PDNP), ranging from re-wilding (or land abandonment) and silvopastoralism to maintaining the status-quo. There are also multiple (mainly policy and socio-economic) drivers that may change the current land-use and livelihoods in the PDNP over the next 20 years. For example, the uncertain implications of CAP reform and the Water Framework Directive are a significant cause for concern for the majority of stakeholders, and possible tightening of burning regulations may constrain game-keepers and farmers who use burning as a land management tool.
