Settled and urban landscapes are areas where the land and natural environment are permanently shaped by human settlement and related acativites. This is where human and environmental needs overlap, intervene and co-exist , and where conservation of biodiversity, ecosystems and species is as important as ensuring the sustainable flow of ecological goods and services to rural, peri-urban and urban populations .
