1 ESPON 2013 Programme – Open Seminar European Territorial Evidence for EU Cohesion Policy and Programming June Aalborg, Denmark Session 2 - Workshop 7 Environmental Resources, Climate Change and Risk Prevention ESPON EU-LUPA European Land use Patterns

2 Policy responses, are needed in order to resolve potential conflicts in land use demand and also guiding land use intensity towards sustainable development. Given the complexity of process that drives land uses and land uses changes, a complete understanding requires consistent framework for integration of scales and themes. Challenges

3 EU-LUPA approach assesses land use patterns and dynamics at regional level in the EU with a multi- sector perspective addressing major territorial challenges and political priorities. This project is about combining and aggregating land cover, land use and administrative data into meaningful typologies as potential input for policy making at European, national and regional level. Project approach

6 Land use change: Hot spots

7 Typologies of change 7

8 Land Use Functions Changes analysis based on CLC could be broaden to better understand land use dynamics in EU27 To assess the impacts of land use change in a comprehensive way: multi-criteria analysis of indicators The Land Use Functions provide a way to enhance the understanding of: –Multi-functionality –Sustainability: integration of the economic, social and environmental dimension

9 The LUFs method: aggregation scheme Basic aggregation scheme, after Paracchini et al. (2008). The symbols represent individual indicators contributing to more than one LUF LUF6: Biotic resources Sustainability EnvironmentEconomySociety LUF5: Abiotic resources LUF4:Housing Infrastructure LUF3: Food & bio-energy LUF2: Leisure & recreation LUF1: Work Indicator 1

10 LUF1 – Provision of work

11 LUF3 – Provision of food and bioenergy 3

12 Eu-lupa could be used as basis for building territorial evidence relevant for the Common Strategic Framework, providing inputs to: –the thematic objectives mentioned in the Common Strategic Framework, and; –also as an input for the Partnership Contracts. contribution to the Common Strategic Framework 12

13 Ob5. Promoting climate change adaptation Potential links between land use patterns and climate- vulnerability if combining EU-LUPA with ESPON-CLIMATE or other vulnerability assessments: – Artificialisation and sprawl intensification patters in regions with foreseen urban climate risks could increase their vulnerability. – Forest and agriculture land use changes (extensification or intensification) in regions with foreseen changes in agricultural productivity or ecological niche due to climate should explore the potentials or define how to reduce vulnerability (soil degradation, hydrological cycle regulation, economic activities). contribution to the thematic objectives 13

14 Ob5. Promoting climate change adaptation

15 Ob6. Protecting the environment and promoting resource efficiency EU-LUPA could help identifying regional challenges and related objectives: water supply, waste-water, waste management, reduce transport related air pollution and integrated urban development, including through sustainable urban drainage, soil desealing measures, rehabilitation of contaminated sites Through sprawl dynamics and Land Use Functions green infrastructure, including Natura 2000 sites Through land use patterns protecting and enhancing cultural heritage and landscapes Through land use patterns efficiency in the use of water by agriculture Through land use patterns improvement of water and soil quality, and contribute to protecting soil from erosion, compaction, salinisation, landslides, and loss of organic matter Through land use patterns contribution to the thematic objectives 15

16 Relevant elements mentioned by the Commission to be taken into account in the design of the PC: 1)An analysis of the Member States or regions development potential and capacity justifying links between land use patterns and socioeconomic performance 2) An assessment of the major challenges to be addressed by the region or Member State, including the identification of the bottlenecks and missing links, innovation gaps, the lack of planning and implementation capacity etc. land use patter as a potential major challenge to be included 3) horizontal coordination; and 4) vertical coordination also to be analyzed in the field of spatial planning policies and instruments 5) Partnership Contract and programmes based on appropriate result indicators. Typologies, Land Use Functions and Land Use Efficiency as potential indicators. contribution to the Partnership Contracts 16
