Abstract

This paper identifies landscape management as a tool for mitigating natural and cultural challenges of climate change, human and environmental security in the context of Gediz Delta (Management Plan) while scrutinizing the management plan for the ecological and socio-economic sustainability of the delta. Thus landscape management acts as a mechanism for strengthening the efficacy of the plan in the years ahead.

To this end, implementation of the management plan should accommodate thoroughly landscape management in legal, administrative and technical frameworks for the benefits of a self-sustainable coastal wetlands’ system across the delta.
