Chapter Summary

This chapter elaborates basic strategic objectives for the development of the Východné Karpaty. These are based on analysis and evaluation of natural and socio-economic conditions, their changes and their current status regarding use. They should ensure basic, positive changes in the region following principles and criteria of sustainable development; i.e., social advancement that takes account of and respects natural and cultural and historical resources. Therefore, the fundamental goal of sustainability is to harmonise these aspects with economic development, so that both society and the environment benefit. The chapter presents the initial results of the scenarios examined within the BIOSCENE project of the EU Fifth Framework programme. The project incorporates the views of local stakeholders to evaluate the impact that future agricultural change could have on biodiversity, with the aim of guaranteeing sustainable development.
