Landscape planning and bioenergy in ilomantsi

Landscape Planning and Bioenergy in Ilomantsi

  • The Hill Villages of Ilomantsi are one of the 27 national named landscapes in Finland

  • These landscapes have great symbolic value and widely recognised significance in cultural and historical terms

  • Due to changes in agriculture and land use, traditional landscapes and cultivation fields are reforesting and disappearing.

  • Situation of land use, bioenergy resources and production possibilities in hill fields areas are well defined using different kinds of statistics.

  • One opportunity to protect valuable cultural landscapes is to cultivate biomass plants e.g. grass, oilseed rape, reed canary grass or cereal crops for bioenergy

  • Bioenergy production can also support local employment, economical and social development and decrease dependency of import energy.
