However Ms Alzola has tried to reflect in her responses the potential interest of the Department of Environment of the Basque Government with respect to the SRA. She is willing to participate in an online match making / meeting in the medium term though.

Aesthetic, cultural and social values of landscapes will be preserved better.

  • For founders
  • For endusers
  • For researchers
  • For citizens
Investing in valuing intrinsic soil and landscape valuation, will increase landscape preservation and restauration, tourism and recreation revenues, and stimulates innovative business models to finance urban and rural development.
Research that aims at valuing intrinsic, cultural, aestetic and social values of landscapes, soils and ecosystems, will benefit end users of these values and will provide them with arguments during decision-making.
Researching the intrinsic, cultural, social and aestetic values of natural and man-made landscapes will challenge researchers to develop innovative valuation metrics and indicators, that will convince at the negotiation table where decisions are prepared on land use and land management.
Citizens are the primary beneficiaries of intrinsic, cultural, aestetic and social benefits of landscapes, soils and ecosystems. Hence, citizens will benefit directly from increased knowledge on these values.

Landscapes, soils and ecosystems have intrinsic values such as aesthetic, cultural and social, which can hardly be values. Manmade landscapes are often unique from a cultural, social and historical point of view. These are public values, which are challenged by often privately driven societal demands.

Soils, flora and landscapes have intrinsic values (e.g. aesthetic, cultural and social values) which can hardly be valuated. These values can be a basis for tourism and recreation. “Cultural landscapes”, or man-made landscapes (in German “Kulturlandschaft”, in Dutch “Cultuurlanschap” ) can be unique from a cultural, social and historical point of view. One has to be aware of the fact that these intrinsic values are often public goods (e.g. esthetical value of a landscape, biodiversity on an alpine meadow) whereas the challenges from the demand side are often private interests (e.g. infrastructure for tourism, real estate).
