Why spatially determining of SDGs matters for landscapes in the German Lusatia Region

This Talk is reflecting on parts of a research and a publication being based on a case study in Spree Forest and Lusatia Region for reaching sustainability in spatial, environmental, regional and landscape management. It is treating mainly about why gaining a transition into sustainable regional management and economy is important for landscapes.

The second working title of this Landscape Talk could be “Global Perception and Local Action in Times of Climate Change“. It should get clear, why implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in spatially determined areas is that predestined for enhancing regional landscape management (and marketing) as well as economy.

Any region should be able to easily create sustainable alternatives in transformation processes for decarbonization. But this scale-overarching endeavour has to be accompanied by informal planning instruments such as spatially determined guiding principles of SDGs.

Keywords: Sustainable Development, SDGs, Climate Change, Spree Forest and Lusatia Region, Cultural Landscapes, Land Use, Protection, Regional Management, Insecurity and Change Factors, Environmental and Landscape Planning.

Spatial Determination of SDGs for Activating Regional Management in Spree Forest and Lusatia Region and its Lusatian Traditional and Modern 21st Century Landscapes:

Aim to achieve case study-related and spatially determined solutions on combining capacity building, landscape protection, regional identity (socio-cultural scale), ecosystem services and biodiversity and new (participatory) ways of inclusion of landscape and geographical instruments on landscape scaled and regional level cultural and natural landscapes management.

Sustaining Landscapes – Landscape Units for Climate Adaptive Regional Planning:  Abstract and Paper of:

 Aim to achieve planning instrumental optimized security in complex-cause and effect situations within global and climate change syndromes and therefore a better assessment, participatory guidance, decision making throughout implementing a theoretical pro-active approached landscape meta model while using tool of landscape units.
