The climate is already changing - the ten warmest years on record have all occurred since 1998. Southwest England can expect higher temperatures, sea level rise and increased frequency of severe storm and flood events. Moe than 118 million tourist trips were made to Southwest England in 2007, bringing in Â£9 billion to the regional economy. This film was commissioned to highlight the threats and opportunities to the region's tourism businesses, and to encourage other businesses to quickly adapt to the inevitable changes ahead.
