Workshop 1: Nature conservation 2.0 New tab 

Participants

Max. 40 participants, open to all conference participants 9:00 – 12:00 (registration required)

Thematic Outline

The cp³ project conducted three-year research on collaborative governance arrangements as innovative approaches in policy to enhance biodiversity and ecosystem services in agricultural landscapes. Thereby, collaborative governance builds upon partnerships of actors from the civil society, public and private sphere of society and is contrasted to hierarchical command and control or market-based governance approaches. The analysis was based on empirical research in three European protection areas: the Biosphere reserve Spreewald, Germany, the Nature park Jauerling-Wachau, Austria, and the Berg en Dal region as part of the National Landscape Gelderse Poort, Netherlands. The workshops will highlight key research results of the project centered around the following research questions:

  • What are the specific characteristics of collaborative governance and what are the merits they hold over hierarchical and market-based approaches?
  • How can collaborative governance arrangements help to reach a better institutional fit, that is to ensure that the governance structures are spatially and temporally well-aligned to the ecosystems they are meant to govern?
  • How can collaborative governance arrangements improve the leeway for farmers to change their management towards more sustainable production practices to spur biodiversity and increase ecosystem service provision at landscape level?

The workshop will start with an introduction by the workshop organizers. Then there will be time for four or five individuals invited presentations, including time for Q&A (time slots of 20-30 min.) The workshop will close with a final discussion. In-between there will be short break.

Workshop 2: Metropolitan agri‐food‐systems and peri‐urban agricultural landscapes New tab 

Participants

About 20 participants, open to all conference participants (registration required)

Thematic Outline

The workshop will look into the concept of metropolitan agri-food systems from the perspectives of food system, peri-urban agriculture and landscape development and will elaborate the nexus and to bridge the gaps between these different realms. Participating experts will elaborate current research approaches and address future challenges and research needs as well as novel research approaches along these interfaces:

  • food systems – peri-urban agriculture;
  • landscape development – food systems;
  • peri-urban agriculture – landscape development

Through short pitch presentation in each of the small working groups, the workshops will shed light on a variety of more specific research topics and cross-cutting themes, which occur along these interfaces, including:

  • Multifunctionality of food, agriculture and landscape
  • Synergies and trade-offs between the food production function, ecosystem services and quality of life in metropolitan regions and landscapes
  • Land use system and landscape change: Historic and current perspective developments of metropolitan agri-food systems, agriculture and landscapes
  • Novel concepts, practice solutions, planning and governance processes, such as agricultural parks and food hubs
  • Peri-urban farm adaptation and strategies, new business models and entrepreneurs
  • Re-connecting urban-rural linkages through enhanced food supply chain and network structures, which are specifically adapted to the peri-urban context: new models of alternative food networks, short food supply chains and regional marketing
  • Food system transition, new consumer-producer-relationships and (open and social) innovation and co-creation to build new functional and social links between urban food systems and peri-urban agriculture
  • Metropolitan agri-food system analysis and modelling (demand and supply) at different scales

As an outcome of the workshop a peer-reviewed position paper will be developed, which summarises the results and draws an outlook on the future research agenda. In addition the workshop should contribute to the identification of potential interests in further collaboration (research exchange, project proposals, publication, etc.).

​TitleTowards innovative land management strategies and policy measures for reducing trade-offs between food supply, biodiversity and ecosystem services at a landscape scale
​Organizers:TALE consortium, which stands for “Towards multifunctional agricultural landscapes in Europe: Assessing and governing synergies between food production, biodiversity, and ecosystem services” (www.ufz.de/tale) Project coordinator: Prof. Dr. Martin Volk, Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ, Leipzig, Germany

Workshop 3: Towards innovative land management strategies New tab 

Participants

About 30 participants, open to all conference participants (registration required)

Thematic Outline

Many rural landscapes in Europe deal with competing demands for land, at a cost of trade-offs between multiple objectives, such as food production, ecosystem services and biodiversity. Understanding and balancing these trade-offs has a high priority on the policy agenda to promote sustainable landscapes (e.g. Tscharntke et al., 2005).

While these trade-offs are highly context-specific, place-based studies that focus on local specificities of trade-off mechanisms are currently missing, particularly with involvement of stakeholders or local experts (e.g. Turkelboom et al., 2016). However, the regional and local policy context as well as the relations between and attitudes of stakeholders are highly relevant for trade-off assessments, as these factors strongly influence the options for the management of these landscapes (Cord et al., 2017).

This satellite workshop focusses on the question how trade-offs between food production, biodiversity and ecosystem services could be effectively managed at a landscape scale. We aim to gain an improved understanding on the role of trade-off assessments within a regional policy and planning setting as well as on innovative policy instruments that could support the reduction of trade-offs within a European context.

As a starting point of the discussion between scientists, policy makers from regional/national governmental levels and practitioners from different backgrounds (e.g. NGO representatives, local stakeholders), we use the results and experiences from the European research project TALE.

The main aim of the BiodivERsA/FACCE-JPI TALE project (“Towards multifunctional agricultural landscapes in Europe: Assessing and governing synergies between food production, biodiversity, and ecosystem services”) was to explore how ecosystem services and biodiversity should be managed within agricultural landscapes. Within the project, the multifaceted links between agricultural production, biodiversity and ecosystem services have been disentangled and quantified for different European agricultural landscapes - based on case studies in Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Spain. Furthermore, it was assessed how these trade-offs might change under different scenarios, which were developed in a participatory process and framed around land sharing versus land sparing strategies.

Workshop 4: Landscape valuation using economic experiments New tab 

Participants

About 40 participants, open to all conference participants (registration required)

Thematic Outline

Pressures on humanity including climate change, urbanisation and population growth require policy makers and landscape planners to carefully consider land use changes. Land use changes affect ecosystems and their services, which impact the welfare of multiply stakeholder groups. Economic valuation methods help to measure welfare effects, yet are only rarely used in policy decisions. In the proposed satellite workshop, we discuss strengths and weaknesses of economic valuation and how results from different methods can be effectively used in policy contexts. What are the specific characteristics of collaborative governance and what are the merits they hold over hierarchical and market-based approaches?

Workshop 5: Towards sustainable development of rural landscapes New tab 

Participants

About 30 participants, open to all conference participants (registration required)

Thematic Outline

To achieve sustainable development of both the agroforestry landscapes as the silvopastoral landscapes, it is necessary to have a precise knowledge of the development process and dynamics of the landscape with a socioeconomic research approach of the policies to be carried out. Also, it must be included an appropriate assessment component for use in decision-making, in order to analyze how this framework could be developed to facilitate interdisciplinary research applied to the development processes of the landscape, such as the interaction between landscape and the rural population.

The workshop offers the opportunity to establish a scientific basis for proper assessment of the different components of these landscapes for use in decision-making. In this regard, it is proposed to facilitate discussion investigating the current status of the valuation of landscape services by analyzing the quality of existing indicators.

Among the possibilities to communicate the results of the workshop, perhaps the best option would publish a special issue in an indexed journal. The organizer I will contact with different journals on this subject to explore this possibility.
