Developing Landscape Planning Objectives and Measures

authored by
Christian Albert, Christina von Haaren

The development of targets and measures is one of the core tasks of landscape planning. This chapter introduces requirements, distinguishes between different types, and provides an overview of the basic modules for developing targets and measures in landscape planning. The chapter begins with an explanation of the context dependence of objective development processes in landscape planning. In terms of requirements, the chapter proposes that landscape planning targets and measures will need to be perceived simultaneously as scientifically credible, politically salient and procedurally legitimate by users and stakeholders in order to yield influence on decisions. The chapter proposes ten modules which can be used to develop targets and measures in landscape planning. In addition, the process character of objectives in landscape planning is pointed out. The chapter concludes with remarks concerning how the principles and approaches described in this chapter can be applied in practice.
