Future #3 – Resilient Landscapes

What changes to strategy, organizational structure, capabilities, & infrastructure would be needed?:

Nothing, we are already on this track.

What information could help mitigate the risks presented by this future?:

Public awareness of the connectivity of humans to their environment, similar to the Native American culture. People need to better understand the natural role of humans manipulating their environment in a way that is sustainable for generations. Awareness of the natural role of fire in these dynamic ecosystems
