    Abstract

    Rural areas must fulfil a variety of functions and accommodate many activities. The complexity of the problems, limited funds and the near irreversibility of some interventions result in a compelling need to evaluate in advance the effects of alternative solutions for designation of land, for measures to develop infrastructure and for soil and water management. Scenario studies help to manage the complexity, to bound uncertainties and to create new views. The book gives an overview of the nature, variety and scope of scenario studies and illustrates various European examples and reviews on regional soil and water management, nature development and landscape quality, and rural planning and the future of regions.
