VBU will develop its goals approach further. We intend to . . .
- develop better measures to enable our members to assess level of environmental standards, contribution of well-being,
- develop our approach to assessing benefits for the environment at different scales using mapping tools and ways of assessing „values“,
- continue to improve our understanding of the links between natural resources, development of ecosystems and well-being, and
- given the imperative for a joined-approach, to work with other bodies to refine the use of environmental management as a support tool for integrated planning.
While this is still work in progress, VBU has the opportunity to use the new legislative frameworks and emerging research to improve the ap-proach of management resources.
