During the late 1990s, ECNC developed, together with interested governments, an Action Plan for European Landscapes under the Pan-European Biological and Landscape Diversity Strategy. Part of this Action Plan was the implementation of this workshop, which was organized jointly by ECNC and The Countryside Agency. The event took place at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, on 25 & 26 March 1999.

This report contains the proceedings of the workshop. It is both a reference and a ‘benchmark’ for future activities in developing landscape assessment procedures in support of sustainability objectives at the European level.

The workshop and the proceedings were made possible by financial contributions from the Department of the Environment, Transport and Regions (DETR, UK), the Swiss Agency of the Environment, Forests and Landscapes (Switzerland), English Nature (UK), the Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment (the Netherlands), and the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature Management and Fisheries (the Netherlands).
