About this book

Rural areas need to fulfil a large variety of functions and to accommodate many activities. The complexity of the problems, limited funds, and the almost irreversible character of some interventions result in a compelling need to evaluate ex ante the effects of alternative solutions for designation of land, for measures to develop infrastructure, and for soil and water management. Scenario studies are undertaken to help manage the complexity, to place bounds on uncertainties, and to create new visions.
After an overview of the nature, variety and scope of scenario studies, the book illuminates various European examples and reviews, under the following headings:

  • regional soil and water management;
  • nature development and landscape quality;
  • rural planning and the future of regions.
