Sustainable Landscape Planning The Reconnection Agenda

by Paul (University of Sheffield, UK) Selman

Sustainable Landscape Planning The Reconnection Agenda Synopsis

This book takes as its starting point the need to examine critically the case for landscape reconnection. It looks at alleged disconnections and their supposed consequences. It explores the arguments about reconnecting the natural and human elements of whole landscapes. More broadly, it considers landscape as an arena within which science, humanities and professions can find common ground, and in which vivid social learning can occur about key social and environmental issues. It takes a dynamic view of landscape, in contrast to the popular image of timeless, traditional scenery. It accepts that even the most cherished cultural landscapes will change and, indeed, it views `change drivers' as a potentially positive means of creating new connectivities between people and place. It recognises the growing interest in promoting resilience and ecosystem services across extensive landscapes - such as by creating new 'space' for water and wildlife.

Sustainable Landscape Planning The Reconnection Agenda Press Reviews

This book would be appropriate for undergraduate students and those interested in sustainable natural resource management. [...]Certainly, better connections between city and countryside and society and nature are important issues in both the New and Old World. Brock Paciejewski and John Shults, Ecosystem Science and Management Program, University of Northern British Columbia, Canada, in the International Journal of Wilderness
