Combining knowledge from local stakeholders, policy-makers and social and natural scientists in order to anticipate, monitor and sustainably manage rural change in UK uplands, offers a choice of options to address future challenges that could never have been developed by any group alone. After modelling factors driving future change to develop detailed pictures of possible future social, economic and environmental conditions, stakeholders and researchers identify strategies that could help protect and enhance future livelihoods and the environment and evaluate them through computer models, site visits and other participatory methods.
