Description and Results

Land use issues such as land consumption, soil erosion and degradation, a shrinking economy and population, and the lack of harmonization between the conservation of biodiversity and various land uses have been and still are typical for many parts of Ukraine. The country does not have any legally binding, synchronized planning instruments to solve such land use conflicts, to identify areas for the national network of protected areas, to ensure and restore a high environmental quality and for sustainable development (status 2010). Within the project, a German-Russian team of consultants provided the Ukrainian partners with the scientific and methodological foundations for preventive, comprehensive landscape planning with a cross-sectoral approach. The project was directed both at the scientists of the Institute of Geography of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences and at the responsible ministries and administrations of the three model areas.

The transferability of methods and contents of German landscape planning to the Ukrainian situation was practically tested on three planning levels. This resulted in the following plans: Landscape programme for Cherkassy oblast (M 1:200,000), landscape master plan for Kaniv district (M 1:50,000) and local landscape plan for Stepancy municipality (M 1:10,000). With regard to a nomination as UNE-SCO biosphere reserve, an additional zoning proposal at a scale of 1:100,000 was prepared for the Kanivs'kiy Zapovednik protected area. In order to support the creation of respective plans in other regions of Ukraine, the results from the three model areas were incorporated into a planning guide. In this guide, landscape planning contents and methods are presented, particularly their transferability and usability in other Ukrainian municipalities and regions.
