Fact Sheet – Building capacity for resilient and inclusive conservation of cultural landscapes
Common to all human inhabited landscapes is that human management is an integral part of conservation. Positioning protected areas as embedded in and connected to the larger landscape also means extending the conservation efforts beyond protected area boundaries, acknowledging the diverse interactions between protected areas and adjacent land uses. This paper presents a collaborative approach to building a collective capacity to identify, evaluate, combine and adapt multiple coexisting strategies for resilient and inclusive conservation of cultural landscapes, exemplified by a pilot application in the mosaic landscape of Östergötland, Sweden. The paper is intended for planners, policy makers and other actors who seek to maintain and develop mixed multifunctional landscapes in a rapidly changing world.
