Going with the grain Changing land uses to fit a changing landscape

Simon Upton, the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment, emphasizes the importance of adapting land uses to align with an evolving landscape. He advocates for "going with the grain," a concept that highlights the need to modify how we utilize land to better fit the changing environmental conditions. This approach ensures that our land use practices are sustainable and resilient, addressing the challenges posed by shifting landscapes. By doing so, we can create a harmonious balance between human activities and the natural world, promoting long-term ecological health and productivity. Upton's insights underscore the critical role of adaptive strategies in environmental stewardship and sustainable development.
