10 Circular agriculture and spatial quality (KB-40-005-010)

Project: LNV project

Project Details


The impact of implementing of circularity in the agricultural landscape will be even greater than implementing renewable energy interventions only as it will involve other large scale infrastructures, e.g. modern stables, fermentation plants, water retention and will involve cultivation of different types of crops. To prevent deadlocks in the implementation of such circular agricultural systems we need to acquire a better understanding of what ‘spatial quality’ is and to assess spatial consequences of connected circularity scenarios in agricultural landscapes, preferably before they go into the stage of public discussions. Therefore, this project aims at generating a clearly defined and easily applicable set of criteria that helps to describe ‘spatial quality’. Such a definition of ‘spatial quality’ is novel in the context of the new ‘ connected circularity’ landscapes of the Netherlands, but is urgently needed. Our project team has the expertise to successfully execute this project.
