Way Ahead

  For landscape improvement, the prime goal is to “create ecological environments and environmental aesthetics ”. The guidelines and strategies for the third phase are formulated with future development trends taken into account:

Regional integration
1-1. It is important for government agencies to be innovative and cooperation by putting forward various courses of actions. Governments need to link with civil society to form partnership and alliances.
1-2. City and county governments are encouraged to formulate landscape program outlines, based on their respective administrative zone, to promote the concepts of regional park (covering an entire county) and landscape park (areas with clear identity that cover several towns).
1-3. Themes and mission systems are designed from a national perspective. The themes focusing on innovative ideas will forge environmental aesthetics in the society.

2-1. The roles and importance of wetland systems, coastal systems, blue-and-green belt systems in territorial structure, environmental resources and land management are defined. Local governments are encouraged to participate in landscape improvement programs and address the values of “sustainable ecology” and “environmental justice” to respond to global climate change.
2-2. This phase highlights the necessity of interactive networks, which should be included in urban regeneration programs and regional development programs. The roles of the interactive networks should be defined clearly in legal terms.
2-3. City and county governments are led to aim urban design program outlines at ecological aspects. The outlines function as the foundation for local renovations.

Partnership and division of labor
3-1. A grading system is required to distinguish the capability of each landscape program proposed by local governments, and to integrate local programs with urban regeneration plans. The transition is completed in several stages. In the end, local governments will have a complete system for environment management.
3-2. Local government as assisted to establish frameworks and organizations, and locate funding sources so that they will be capable of implementing landscape improvement without the central government intervening.

3-3. The strategy for funding will be more diversified when landscape improvement is integrated with urban regeneration programs and the two programs can share frameworks and strategic tools.

Social support
4-1. Through social education, the environmental awareness and the cultural literacy of civil society will be raised.
4-2. Strategies for management and maintenance are required to protect the result of landscape improvement, and the public should be encouraged to participate in the sustainable management and maintenance.
4-3. Successful experiences should be promoted to raise the public awareness of environment values and enlist support.
