SFEI's Resilient Landscapes Program has developed a Landscape Resilience Framework, with the goal of facilitating the integration of resilience science into environmental management, urban design, conservation planning, and ecological restoration. The framework proposes seven key landscape attributes that contribute to ecological resilience, providing details and examples on each. The framework was developed in collaboration with a team of international resilience advisors as part of Resilient Silicon Valley [http://resilientsv.sfei.org/], a project funded by a charitable contribution from Google's Ecology Program. As part of Resilient Silicon Valley, SFEI is in the process of applying the Resilience Framework to Silicon Valley landscapes.
