Land-use Planner report
The results can be downloaded by clicking the Report button. The report will contain a PDF summarising the main results and an Excel spreadsheet with details about calculations.
The results may be used to guide stakeholder discussion about the trade-offs associated with different scenarios. This discussion may lead to revising the preceding stages of the Land-use Planner several times. This will allow you to refine the scenarios or perhaps even change certain data entered at the previous stages.
Qualities of the Land-use Planner Facilitator
As a Land-use Planner Facilitator, you have a critical role in managing the use of the tool in a planning process. This includes compiling data and verifying its accuracy in a transparent manner with the interested actors.
You will also engage with stakeholders to capture their ideas about the future of a landscape into future land-use scenarios. This may not be an easy task when there are contrasting views, and part of your role will be to facilitate discussions among an inclusive group of stakeholders to advance the planning process using the Land-use Planner.
You will also help stakeholders understand the impacts of potential land-use decisions, and you may work with them to collect additional data or redefine scenarios. All of this is with the goal of supporting stakeholders in utilising Land-use Planner results to inform planning decisions.
Test your knowledge
If you would like to receive a certificate at the end of the training, you must complete the quiz. Please be sure to provide your email address at the end of each quiz to record your responses.
Now that you have completed the tutorial, it’s time to work on your project. After you complete these tasks, you will have a complete Land-use Planner project! If you get stuck, check out the videos below where we answer some frequently asked questions. You can find additional guidance in the Land-use Planner manual and in our forum.
- Explore the summary and detailed results pages.
- Check whether the results make sense for your different scenarios. Unexpected results sometimes help to identify some error in the land-use data. This is not a problem; you can adjust this data in Step 2.
- Set your own sustainability targets in the “Targets” page to check how far your scenarios are from meeting your objectives in terms of economic development, social inclusion and environmental protection.
- Explore the possible trade-offs between your different scenarios. One scenario may yield better environmental outcomes while another scenario may be performing better for economic gains.
- Adjust your scenarios as needed and check again to see their performance against your set targets.
- Generate the final project report. And don’t forget to save your project again!
