Landscape Futures and the Challenge of Change: Towards Integrated Cultural/Natural Heritage Decision Making
In coming decades, the need to adapt to and mitigate accelerated environmental change will require heritage and landscape managers to make difficult decisions about how to manage assets and allocate resources (IPCC Climate Change and Land Report 2019, Environment Bill 2019). New strategies are needed for sensitive, proactive management of heritage transformations, particularly in vulnerable coastal landscapes and for assets already in an advanced state of decline. Key findings from the Heritage Futures project which inform this follow on project include: (1) a lack of clarity about the regulatory environment as it relates to the active management of structural change and decline in designated heritage assets, and (2) perceived tensions between natural and cultural heritage priorities blocking effective decision making and change management. The project seeks apply these findings to give decision-makers the capability and the confidence to integrate natural and cultural heritage perspectives in their management of dynamic cultural landscapes, and to recognise opportunities to manage heritage assets for enhancement of both natural and cultural heritage capital. The main project outcome will be a decision support framework which will facilitate iterative, adaptive landscape management and stakeholder engagement over extended timeframes, as heritage and land assets undergo gradual or abrupt change.
