    Volledige rechterlijke toetsing aan landschapswaarden vindt vooralsnog niet plaats. Zonder juridische sturing door afdwingbare wetgeving zoals een algemene maatregel van bestuur of en provinciale ruimtelijke verordening blijkt het landschapsbeleid bij de rechter krachteloos. Enkel beleidsnota’s (pseudowetgeving) volstaan juridisch gezien niet. Landschapsrecht is deel van het ruimtelijke ordeningsrecht. Voor verklaarde rijksbelangen of provinciale belangen is daarmee een tendens zichtbaar in de richting van voortgaande centralisatie en regulering, mogelijk gemaakt door de nieuwe wetgeving.

    Zware machines verpesten de bodemstructuur in de akkerbouw. In de veehouderij komt bij gras scheuren een grote hoeveelheid nitraat vrij. Dit zijn maar twee voorbeelden van ongewenste effecten van maatregelen op onze bodem. En dat terwijl de maatschappij juist verwacht dat boeren hun bodem zó beheren, dat ze ook diensten voor de samenleving kunnen leveren en dat altijd kunnen blijven doen. Het is tijd voor een duurzamer bodembeheer.

    In this 2012 edition of Moving Forward, FAO Forestry is pleased to present a selection of the work it undertook in the 2010-2011 biennium for the benefit of the global forestry community. The FAO Forestry Programme encompasses a vast range of activities and projects, of which this booklet presents only a sample. In all regions of the world, the Programme is helping to implement sustainable forest management and boost the livelihoods of forest-dependent people. It does this, in part, by improving information on forests.

    In de periode april-augustus 2010 zijn opnieuw steekmuggen gemonitord in de waterbergingsgebieden Peize en Roden-Norg. De steekmuglarven en -poppen zijn op in totaal achttien bemonsteringslocaties en de volwassen steekmuggen op acht locaties in het buitengebied en op acht locaties nabij bewoning, gevolgd. De monitoringsresultaten lieten zien dat er in 2010 geen sprake is geweest van het optreden van overlast van steekmuggen. 2010 was een slecht steekmuggenjaar. Larven en poppen van huis-steekmuggen zijn in tijdelijke wateren, zoals droogvallende greppels, aangetroffen.

    We used the process-oriented niche model CLIMEX to estimate the potential global distribution of serrated tussock under projected future climates. Serrated tussock is a drought-tolerant, wind- and human-dispersed grass of South American origin that has invaded pastures in Australia, Europe, New Zealand, and South Africa. The likely effect of climate change on its potential global distribution was assessed by applying six climate-change scenarios to a previously developed model.

    This article examines the origins of the natural-wine movement in Germany—the first of its kind in Europe—by exploring the crucial technological and social developments which prompted the use of derided “artificial” winemaking techniques. The forgotten social reformer Ludwig Gall, once known to as the “savoir of the small vintner,” helped to relieve the unreliable dependency of winegrowers on nature by perfecting a deacidification technique which allowed for pleasant wines in any vintage.

    Tanzania, Germany

    This project was initiated to promote conservation agriculture (CA) in Tanzania so as to improve the food security and rural livelihood of small- and medium-scale farmers through the scaling-up of CA as a sustainable land management (SLM) tool as well as increasing the numbers of SLM-CA farmer field schools (FFS) in communities. The project had two phases from 2004 to 2010. It was funded by a Government of Germany trust fund and implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Ministry of Agriculture in Tanzania.

    Agricultural crops and pasturelands cover 24–38% of the global land area, and thus the ecological services that agricultural systems provide are of utmost societal importance. An important determinant of ecosystem services provision from European farmland is the amount and spatial arrangement of trees, shrubs and woodlands that are integrated into the respective land-use systems.

    Forestry is an important source of income for forest owners and those employed in rural areas. In recent years, this sector has had to tackle far-reaching changes taking place in the social, economic and political system. New demands are now being addressed and policies reformulated. As a response to this pressure, new decision-making structures and innovation activities are taking place in the forestry sector. The aim of this paper is to study learning processes on the management level of forest enterprises.
