Sustainable Planning for Peri-urban Landscapes

Abstract

Urban systems keep growing worldwide with different intensities and characters. As a direct consequence, peripheries increase in number, typologies, and complexity, and their growth is highly dependent on local territorial and socioeconomic conditions. Particularly in peri-urban areas, landscapes underwent fast socioeconomic transitions that have deeply modified their territorial assets and land uses. Forests, agricultural and seminatural areas in peri-urban contexts have been affected by processes of urban developments that heavily modify the provision of ecosystem services. Urban development has produced discontinuous and low-density patterns so that outside the main city, the landscape is characterized by a strong fragmentation of farmlands, forests, seminatural areas, and strong mixes of urban and non-urban land uses.

Planning approaches are required to deal with complex drivers of urban and landscape development to achieve a sustainable growth of peri-urban landscapes and maintain the current provision of ecosystem services. This chapter outlines the main characteristics of peri-urban landscapes and introduces a set of planning topics, solutions, and approaches that are under the lens of current applied research of sustainable planning. Examples from recent literature of such approaches are presented, along with a discussion about their potentials, uncertainties, limitations, and trade-offs about the usability and effectiveness in reaching a better level of sustainability.
