The New England Landcape Futures Project: Building Landscape Scenarios for 2065
The New England Landscape Futures Project of the Landscape Scenarios, Ecosystem Services, and Linkages to Society Research Coordination Network (S3 RCN) seeks to understand possible trends and impacts of landscape change in New England. Working together as a community of scientists, business owners, government officials, landowners and non-profit representatives, they are developing and analyzing a set of alternative landscape futures (or, “scenarios”) for New England and comparing them to “business as usual.” They anticipate the results will inform real world decisions about: forest management, land-use planning, green and gray infrastructure investment, and conservation priority-setting.
