Landscape Conservation and Management: Towards a Sustainable View of the Territory

The project is about Landscape Management, is focused on recognize the landscape not only as an element perceived as being aesthetic and pleasing to the view of the observer, but as a scenario resulting from the interaction of human activities as a cultural body in a certain territorial area of geographical and physiographic characteristics. Natural and cultural landscapes are dynamic because they are transformed by man- place interaction and the space- time relationships that are generated. These spaces are classified as: urban, peri-urban, rural and natural, with the presence of biodiversity of endemic and unique species in the world, ecosystems that are closely related, containing renewable and non-renewable natural resources, with samples of material and material cultural heritage throughout its territory. The landscape contributes to the sustainable development of social, economic and environmental of the territories. So it is the duty of each State promote the protection, having to assume actions for its preservation, management and territorial order. Landscape management aligns with the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030.
