Project description

The aim of the project is to develop new approaches for socio-economic assessment of alternative options of post-mining landscape recultivation and verify them in a case study. The proposed solution seeks to grasp the complex issues of post-mining landscape restoration and the integration of social sciences and natural sciences research methods, taking into account the spatial and temporal dimensions of landscape restoration and the potential use of its production and non-production functions. The results of the project are: (1) A methodology for assessment of alternative post-mining landscape restoration measures, and (2) Specialized map for the pilot site of Sokolov coal basin.

Main project results:

1. Methodology for an assessment of alternative post-mining landscape restoration measures

2. Specialized map of production and non-production functions of the reclaimed areas for the mining site in the Sokolov coal basin.
