Outputs and Results
BuSK focuses on the reconciliation of various and often conflictual rural land and natural resource use modes such as forestry, reindeer herding, agriculture, mining, tourism and recreation – depending on the needs of the case in question
The results will increase the capacity of remote and sparsely populated communities for sustainable environmental management by involving all stakeholders to land use planning and natural resource use decisions
Contribution to the changes sought by NPA 2014-2020:
- Increased capacity of remote and sparsely populated communities for sustainable environmental management
- Involvement of end users. End users will be involved in all stages of participatory GIS mapping from planning of questionnaires to applying the results to local land use planning and natural resource management
