Landscape and Open Space Development in Alpine Metropolitan Areas

Outcomes

Overview

Land use pressure is dramatically increasing as Alpine cities grow and transform. In a metropolis like Munich, around 8.500 flats are built every year to accommodate the 10-15.000 new inhabitants of the metropolitan area. Therefore, green spaces in and around cities are in high demand for a variety of uses. LOS_DAMA! unleashed the potential of peri-urban green infrastructure for sustainable development, by improving governance and planning in this domain. The project partners cooperated to protect liveable open spaces while also connecting people and green spaces throughout the Alpine region.

                                              Within LOS_DAMA! 7 cities, institutes and metropolitan regions developed and implemented local pilot projects in the following city regions: Munich, Salzburg, Vienna, Ljubljana, Trrento, Turin and Grenoble. A detailed description of the local activities is published in the LOS_DAMA! compendium and linked with the tools used for implementation. In addition overall challenges of enhancing Green Infrastructure in the Alpine Space are explained followed by the solutions of Project Partners in the different plannign contexts.

                                              Within LOS_DAMA! 7 cities, institutes and metropolitan regions developed and implemented local pilot projects in the following city regions: Munich, Salzburg, Vienna, Ljubljana, Trrento, Turin and Grenoble. 38 informal tools were developed to enhance Green Infrastructure in peri-urban city regions. As the main challenges varied in each city regions, the developed tools have different aims and were clustered in the following groups: 1) raising awareness tools 2) analysis tools 3) collaboration support tools 4) plan, planning and implementation tools and 5) process-supporting tools. The tools contain experiences and tips for application and are transferable and easy to apply for different contexts.

                                              Within LOS_DAMA! 7 cities, institutes and metropolitan regions developed and implemented local pilot projects in the following city regions: Munich, Salzburg, Vienna, Ljubljana, Trrento, Turin and Grenoble. The University of Grenoble-Alpes and the City of Trento analyzed the implementattion processes including the governance system, a SWOT analysis (strength, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) and stakeholder involvement. The publication contains pilot profiles for each of the 7 regions and specific and general recommendations how to better implement Green Infrastructure on the local and regional level.
