Sammanfattning (abstract):
An important challenge in the quest for sustainable development is to understand and manage changes in the physical landscape. When including the material as well as the immaterial, features as well as processes, and when considering the unique constellations of these at different sites, strategies for sustainable development must by necessity reflect local variation. In this chapter we explore the appropriateness of applying the concept social-ecological systems when analysing landscape dynamics in delimited areas, and we test and discuss potential insights that could be gained from relating resilience thinking to a geographical landscape approach. First we will elaborate on the spatial dimension of the concept of social-ecological systems, departing from key publications prominent in resilience thinking. Second, we describe central aspects in research applying a spatial landscape approach, departing from concepts developed by Torsten Hägerstrand, and discuss the links between the different approaches and inherent concepts. A Swedish case, the rural landscape of Hållnäs, will here be used to clarify the theoretical reasoning. Finally, based on these links, we suggest a tentative conceptual model for framing and analysing landscape dynamics. The chapter should be read as an exercise in exploring conceptual concerns.
