Gestión del paisaje y Ordenamiento Territorial. Abordajes conceptuales y metodológicos

Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to develop an overview about the relevance of landscape management within territorial planning, an issue whose discussion has emerged in recent years, and based on which have developed numerous techniques and regulations in Europe and North America. Globalization process has intensified dynamics of territorial dispersion, urban homogenization and functional specialization. In Europe and the U.S., in response to these dynamics, it has launched land management strategies on the basis of landscape management. The actions respond to the implementation of policies, methodologies and interventions imbued with a conception of landscape understood as an attribute of the entire territory, referred both to singular or quotidian and degraded spaces. From urban and regional diagnosis, some instruments begin to be implemented, deepening territory knowledge from this approach. The establishment of international agreements aimed to impulse landscape management, has promoted the development of laws, instruments and projects that put the landscape as an important component within the territorial and urban planning, set in two clearly defined lines: a proactive line in which the landscape is considered as activator of patrimonial territories, and a regulation line made of laws wih intends to guide land management associated to the landscape. The experiences in Europe and North America in terms of landscape management strategies invite to think on Latin American scene. It can be verify that these strategies have some level of transfer to other contexts, making it clear that the landscape concept can be use to response to territorial planning in contexts less developed than Europe, taking into account that demands are different. Thus, it remains to answer how to implement these projects within the Latin American context, solving problems that exceed the level of developed countries, and where landscape can be constituted as a tool for recognition of the particular local identity, in addition to a significant role in the environmental area.
