Papers of the Cardiff European Landscape Conference 2003 available now

The Conference was devised and promoted by the Countryside Council for Wales, a public body sponsored by the Welsh Assembly Government. It was made possible by a European Union Innovative Actions project: LANDMAP Extension, which was one of four projects within the Welsh Assembly Government's TASK Programme: Towards A Sustainable Knowledge-based region.

The conference report captures abstracts and summaries of the papers and of the many workshop discussions. The framework of the report is that of the conference itself. This framework draws on the thoughtful one provided by the Council of Europe's European landscape Convention.

A CD of many of the PowerPoint presentations, including many of the illustrations used, is also available on request from the Data Officer, Policy Directorate, Countryside Council for Wales, to whom requests for additional copies of this report should also be made.

The value of the conference as a unique step in the evolution of European landscape assessment and policy-making is evident from this report. It was in many ways a seminal event, marking a taking stock of the diverse range of approaches to landscape that have developed. Delegates remarked particularly on this diversity, and on the attempts that are being made to harness information about landscape qualities in the service of social and economic activity.

Conference delegates came from a wide range of backgrounds: research, government, consultancies, and voluntary bodies, and from areas as diverse as Australia, Iceland, Hungary, Portugal, France, Germany and Scandinavia as well as Ireland and the United Kingdom.
