The aim of this research project is to help public and private actors in rural areas under urban pressure to develop strategies to provide Rural Goods and Services (RGS) related to the landscape and to get compensation payments for the use of open space. The results will be used to innovate the system and the content of the rural-urban relationships. The research will be conducted in Finland, France, Hungary, The Netherlands and Spain and will be based on case studies. In each country the research will be carried out in two study areas with rural areas laying respectively within metropolitan hinterlands and within touristy zones further away.
