Community-led rural landscape evaluation in Chile

This project concerns the development of an innovative, community-led methodology for assessing rural landscapes in the Valparaiso region in Chile.

The methodology is developed collaboratively with the Centro Regional de Innovación Hortofrutícola at Universidad Católica de Valparaíso. The methodology will provide a systematic tool for generating information about the value of rural areas and for generating strategies for sustainable rural development, according with the needs and potentials of the specific territory.
