Short description

The aim of the "Changing landscape management in rural Finland CLMIRF" project is the analysis of patterns of anthropogenic land use, their dynamics and relations to the provision of ecosystem goods and services. Different scenarios for the ecological, social and economical long-term impacts of different land use options will be developed and assessed. The ultimate goal is to develop a tool to assess how the ecosystem services could be used in sustainable land use planning. The project and the co-operating partners will support the development of a model for sustainable development for the low productive forestry areas in northernmost Finland.

Benjamin Burkhard completed this project at the Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel.
