New strategies for the protection of natural resources

, : New strategies for the protection of natural resources. Memorie Descrittive della Carta Geologica d'Italia 54(Pages 489-492

Up to now the politics on conservation is based upon census and most programs of protection are only concerned about a collection and organization, though more and more complete and precise, of the items belonging to the categories object of protection; these methodologies, even though careful and thorough, end up in simple lists of the single items separated from their context. To recognize and list all the items is not sufficient to support protection choices and decisions, yet it is necessary to refer them to a system. In fact this perspective allows the selection of the most correct conservation and use plans keeping in mind the significance, the value and the role of each element. This correct approach is used in the "Piano Territoriale Paesistico della Regione Emilia-Romagna", the Landscape Conservation Plan of the Region Emilia-Romagna, where the whole regional territory is studied, including its components and their balances, so that a diverse management is possible for heterogeneous land situations. The aim is to avoid those changes that may significantly alter or destroy the whole of characters that define the various parts of the regional territory and the whole system balance. When it is recognized a complexity in the system, the consequence is that it is impossible to protect a single category of items excluding the interrelationships and the balances among different categories. Concluding, a simple politics of protection of individual items appears not justified anymore.
