Micaia’s approach to wellbeing and prosperity, the requirement of finding the most effective (productive, equitable) balance amongst often competing agendas/priorities, finds significant reflection in the Sustainable Landscape Approach.
A landscape approach aims to reconcile competing objectives for allocating and/or utilizing available land and resources to achieve the ‘triple bottom line’ outcome of positive social, economic and environmental impacts.
Ideally, the landscape approach leads to a shared vision for the future integrating the objectives of all stakeholders at landscape level, in order to establish long-term integrated sustainable development.
