6 …to ordinary landscapes

7 Policy instruments  Regulation e.g. prohibited activities, permits, planning zones  Use of financial instruments e.g. grants, subsidies, tax breaks, user fees, taxes  Building capacity and providing people with information e.g. training; websites; research & advisory services  More flexibility in leases and uses of interim and neglected spaces e.g. urban brownfield; upgrading of low biodiversity value land; diversification of bland parkland)

8 Payments for Ecosystem Services  A voluntary transaction where  A well-defined ecosystem service (or land use likely to secure that service)  Is being “bought” by a (minimum one) ecosystem service buyer  From a (minimum one) ecosystem service provider  If and only if the ecosystem service provider secures provision (conditionality)

10 Conclusions  Sole focus on protected areas may distract from good land use/planning more generally  Environmental governance needs to be facilitated across integrated protected and “ordinary” landscapes  Fundamental thinking about interactions between society, protected areas and the greenspace between people and parks
