Chapter Summary

Integrated management of heathlands can be achieved following a clear management plan. Setting up such a plan requires at least stakeholder analysis, but preferably stakeholder involvement and shared responsibility. In nature conservation and biodiversity planning it is recognised more and more that the most successful strategy to reach agreed conservation goals is a collaborative approach where private sectors and stakeholders work together with authorities. The motives to turn to integrated management are various. Three major types can be distinguished: increasing the effectiveness of management of complex systems; increasing nature conservation policy effectiveness; and dealing fairly with stakeholders' interests. Because of the different motives for setting up integrated management plans, the content of these plans varies accordingly. The level of involvement of the different socio-economic stakeholders is of prime importance. The final success of integrated management plans depends on a range of ecological factors.

Keywords: ecological factors; heathlands integrated management; private sectors; socio-economic stakeholders
