Ecosystem-based Natural Resources Planning (ENRP) and Landscape Ecological Planning (LEP)

ENRP / LEP are established processes used in land use planning on state-owned land - mainly forests, but also a number of water bodies - throughout Finland. The ENRP / LEP plans are developed at a regional level and implemented / updated as part of ongoing forest management practises. The goal of ENRP is to reconcile differing land uses in a sustainable manner, including nature conservation, forestry, recreation, ecotourism, real estate development and the sale of soil resources. The key aim of the process is to ensure the sustainable, multiple use of land by harmonising ecological, economical and socio-cultural objectives of forest management.
