How to fix the world

This sounds interesting:
In this paper, we assess the adaptive strategies that enable communities to cope with external political, economic, and ecological threats, and focus on those adaptations that strengthen their capacity to manage ecosystems sustainably.
But it is published in Ecology and Society, so...
We adopt an integrated, social–ecological systems approach, which enables us to assess the entire system, not just its social or ecological components.
And...
Six key strategies can be adopted to enhance communities’ adaptive capacity and thus their empowerment: leadership and vision, knowledge networks, institutions that are nested across scales, linking culture with management, enabling policies, and motivation.
World fixed.
