  11. 11. Green Economy – What is new? we are reaching planetary limits, not just in terms of greenhouse gas emissions but also in our use of water, land, forests and other natural resources. The environmental and social costs of our current economic model are becoming more and more apparent. the global recession has led to a reconsideration of key tenets of the current economic model – such as the primacy of growth(Manish Bapna and John Talberth , World ResourcesInstitute, April 2011) 11
  12. 12. Green Economy – What is new?Green Economy− provides an alternative vision for growth and development;− can generate growth and improvements in people’s lives in ways consistent with sustainable development.− promotes a triple bottom line: sustaining and advancing economic, environmental and social well-being.(Manish Bapna and John Talberth , World ResourcesInstitute, April 2011) 12
  13. 13. Our Focus Protected Areas (P.A.s) embedded in their environment:− adjacent communities, district, region, nation− spatial− social, environmental, economic− administrative, institutional 13
  14. 14. Implementing Green Economy through Regional Development Planning Situation around P.A.s:− often structurally weak remote areas− poor people depending on natural resources (fire wood, charcoal, wood for construction, NTFP, grazing ground, …)− large scale timber extraction− encroachment, degradation, fragmentation− relationship between P.A. and communities often distant: two separate worlds− adequate laws, but low compliance 14
  15. 15. What can Regional Development Planning provide?− solution to multi-faceted problems can only be holistic and multi-disciplinary− local development activities need coordinated support (infrastructure, market, training, regulations, credit, etc.)− only stakeholder dialogue and integrated planning for biodiversity conservation and livelihood needs can deal with the two issues in a holistic way and design strategies for a sustainable future of both 15
  16. 16. Regional planning: From „plan-making“ towards process managementConventional statutory planning:Regional plans are intended to guide long- term spatial development in the following way:1. They designate central places2. They determine development axes for transportation and infrastructure3. They designate areas in which certain goals should have priority 16
  17. 17. New Paradigms of Regional Planning The real assets of a region are the actors within theregion, their resources and the specific regionalculture of cooperation, communication andcompetition.The core of regional development and spatialplanning is no longer the elaboration of plans andprogrammes. Regional development must promotethe realisation of planning goals by supporting thecooperation between different stakeholders, frompublic administration, the private sector and civilsociety.Planning and acting in networks is especiallyimportant at the regional level. 17
  18. 18. New Paradigms of Regional PlanningRegional planning attempts to coordinate theplanning activities of all the numerous participantswithin a limited territorial unit.It deals with housing and the settlement the economy pattern demography organisations social and and institutions cultural life and the natural infrastructure environment within the region 18
  19. 19. New Paradigms in Regional PlanningAbove all regional planning is about thepeople who live in the area.People as individuals, as households,people in enterprises and in organisationsand institutions.People with their dreams, theiraspirations, their values and their goals. 19
  20. 20. Some characteristics of good regional planningGood planning is bottom up, i.e. it is initiated by the local people up or their representatives. If it is started by a government body like a planning board or a land consolidation agency, there must be a mandate by the local people. is participatory, i.e. all important stakeholders participatory within the area have a say in the elaboration of the plan and are continuously consulted is action-oriented, i.e. there must be a close link oriented between planning and implementation, and there must be a step by step approach to complex development, there must be a package of projects which can be implemented immediately 20
  21. 21. Regional Development Planning - linkingProtected Areas and their environment The Zoning Concept 21
  22. 22. Implementing Green Economy through Regional Development Planning: examples for P.A.s− Community based eco tourism− Utilisation of renewable energies for new industries and infrastructures− Climate friendly building− Alternative income generation measures and sustainability− Institutional development 22
  23. 23. Webinar as a Forum for Exchange− First webinar (24th Sept.): introduction of organisers, topic and opportunities− Group ‚Green Planning‘ Forum: introducing your examples; discussion and exchange about them 23
  24. 24. Webinar as a Forum for Exchange, ctd.− Second webinar (11th Nov.): lessons learnt and action plans of summer school participants will be presented; questions can be asked− Group ‚Green Planning‘ features examples− Publication in Rural21 planned 24
  25. 25. How to continue?− Present your solutions / experiences in the Forum− Jointly choose relevant examples for publication in Rural 21− Give feedback on implementation of your action plans− Find supporters for your action plans− Establish strong professional networks 25
