Landscape planning in theory and practice


Join this webinar to learn the what and the how of landscape approaches

Landscapes provide a multitude of benefits, or ecosystem services, and are managed for multitude of planning objectives. During this webinar Dr. Louise Willemen (ITC-University of Twente, the Netherlands) will give an overview of the state-of-knowledge on landscape planning & decision making. After describing key theoretical concepts and frameworks of landscapes and decision making (What?), Louise will share practical steps to support the implementation of a collaborative landscape planning process, with a special focus on the role of maps in this (How?).

Webinar presented by former EcoAg researcher Dr. Louise Willemen will highlight Spatial Planning and Monitoring Guide

These practical steps will include: setting up a collaborative planning team, suggestions for spatial information sources, exercises on ‘spatial literacy’, and a check-list for landscape planning actions. The steps are described in the user’s guide “The Spatial Planning and Monitoring Guide: Maps to Link People with their Landscapes”, which was designed by Louise for EcoAgriculture Partners and Cornell University, to stimulate the use of maps in cross-sectoral collaborations to locate, design and monitor interventions in rural landscapes in developing countries.
