Peri-urban Conflicts and Environmental Challenges : A Mediterranean Perspective,  Book

Peri-urban Conflicts and Environmental Challenges : A Mediterranean Perspective

Edited by Antonio Tomao, Matteo Clemente


Urban expansion and the preservation of fringe landscapes are clearly interconnected issues.

This book discusses the relationship between landscape and peri-urban agriculture and the possible implications of sustainable land management for fringe land quality, proposing a framework to evaluate the latent nexus between agro-forest systems and human settlements in Southern Europe.

Eco-sustainable planning integrated with multi-faceted policy actions (social, economic, cultural and political dimensions) is a relevant approach to reinforce sustainability of fringe landscapes.

Permanent assessment of these factors allows for the implementation of different development scenarios.

The present work definitely contributes to systemic and multi-scale approaches informing environmental policies, with the aim of achieving an integrated management of peri-urban agricultural landscapes.
