This document reports on the likely effects of climate change on the South West Region. Coping with a changing climate is likely to be one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century as global warming makes its impact. Most people in the South West have heard of climate change, yet many do not know how it will affect their jobs, homes, lifestyles and environment. Here in the South West climate change is bringing both opportunities and challenges now and will bring new ones in our children's lifetimes. Fishing crews are seeing new species in their nets, tourists are benefiting from warmer weather, farmers are already able to grow new crops. On the down side, severe flooding is happening more often, water resources are stretched and some plant and animal species are coming under increasing pressure.
