A resilient landscape, if carefully managed and left undeveloped, is a landscape that can adapt and survive within a changing climate. Climate change resilient landscapes have a chance to survive as intact landscapes.
The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has identified three elements that allow nature to adapt and become ‘resilient’:
• Landforms including rocky coastlines, wetlands and upland forests, which create different microclimates.
• Undeveloped natural passages for animals to travel along.
• A variety of geology.
Resilient Landscapes give us Hope for the Future
