What is a Resilient Landscape?

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.
