komreg – local-authority land management in a regional perspective


Aim of research

Transdisciplinary cooperation on a regional basis in order to concentrate and expand the existing innovative potentials of science, planning and communities in an optimal way. Furthermore a transferrable and practice-orientated example for communal and regional land management in terms of the national sustainability aims should be developed.


Model-supported scenarios for area claims with different cultivation types and densities respectively containing options for differentiation concerning the degree of interior and outer development. In detail: identification of area potentials (interior development) for the involved communities; data collection and extrapolation of the identified area potentials for housing areas, structuring and adjustment of scenarios, data collection concerning profitability, demonstration of cost-saving potentials, deduction of inter-communal and regional strategies and priorities.


The results of the scenarios reveal that for all parts of the Freiburg region the existing potentials for interior development can cover a considerable part of the area-relevant need for new house building.


The KOMREG results underline that interior development does not only mean ecological and social advantages but also a significant role for sustainable development of regions in an ecological point-of-view.
