Urban planning scenarios for anticipating landscape connectivity changes
The BiodiverCité project applied participatory urban planning scenarios with stakeholders for anticipating landscape ecological impacts of urban changes in the metropolitan area of Bordeaux (France).
The co-construction of scenarios from a multiplicity of stakeholders’ point of view aimed at estimating their impacts on landscape connectivity for animal species. these scenarios included dimensions relating to urban development, landscape ecological configurations and planning governance. Through the differentiated
effects of scenarios according to urban development schemes and/or actions in favor of the biodiversity preservation, this project allowed a critical feedback on policy decisions and actions towards anticipative strategies for sustainable urban landscapes at the metropolitan scale.
