Making landscape services tangible

Differing landscape perceptions often make it difficult to facilitate constructive dialogue about future landscape development. The concept of landscape services can offer support here by helping to find a common language in a participatory approach. Together with researchers at the Universities of Zurich and Lausanne, the Forum Landscape, Alps, Parks (FoLAP) of the Swiss Academy of Sciences has produced a factsheet that introduces readers to the concept. Drawing on case studies, the factsheet shows how the landscape services approach can be used for local and regional landscape development and for implementation of the Swiss Landscape Concept.
