CH-1.2 :: Environmental qualities and land rights of the residential areasRelevance of the issue and justification of the need for research:
To a certain extent, the environmental qualities of land and soil are included in the Swiss rural land rights. This is not the case for the land rights of the residential areas. However, it is essential that the land in residential areas is not accorded a purely economic character. Unfortunately, researchers in environmental law that deal with this land issue are missing in Switzerland.
Specific research topics and knowledge gaps:
• Integrate environmental qualities in the land rights of residential areas: Show how environmental qualities can be integrated into the land rights of residential areas, so that the land there is not accorded a purely economic character.
• Network, SME/consultant, others, workshop participants
