Abstract:

Delivering landscape scale action for trees and forests presents a major challenge to existing policy frameworks. Governments and their agencies aspire to `joined up thinking' in many areas of public policy but achieving major shifts in land use and land management as required by landscape scale action is a task which will challenge the most avid proponents of integrated thinking. Yet there are some emergent areas of policy where the potential to achieve a less sectoral and more coherent approach to land management is evident: the Water Frameworks Directive focuses on planning at the level of whole catchments and river basins; both the Common Agricultural Policy Mid Term Review proposals for reform of Pillar 1 payments and the Pillar 2 agri-environment scheme review will have a major impact on land management practices. This paper briefly assesses the potential of these and other areas of public policy development and their associated institutions both to advance and to hinder the development of landscape scale action.
