The landscape vision of the Puglia Landscape Plan acts as a driving force for matters regarding sustainability which are included in the regional guidelines. On the one hand it helps to support activities which are already underway such as: urban regeneration and guidelines for new general and operational urban plans starting with the combined agro-environmental and multifunctional regeneration of suburbs and nearby areas of countryside.
The city-countryside pact is one of five territorial projects regarding regional landscape which collectively represent the active safeguarding proposals and development prospects put forward by the regional landscape Plan and represent part of an incredible challenge for the future of the apulian landscape. The pact is based on an agro-urban vision in which agriculture must be able to integrate with the town and its sprawling-widespread nature. According to this view, agriculture is not merely limited to the production of foodstuffs and the safeguarding of the environment. Indeed, it also assumes the role of a living environment which meets the post-rural demand for both countryside and a tamed form of nature. In this context, thanks to the remuneration which comes from the production and provision of public goods and services through the concepts of multifunctionality (agricultural services which do not concern food stuffs) and conditionalities (the agro-environmental services provided by agriculture and quality of life), periurban agriculture assumes a key role.
