Lessons from the Social Form and Landscape Resilience of the Peach Blossom Land, By Yu Kongjian
The relationship between social form and landscape resilience is a challenging but thought-provoking topic. Landscapes are the imprint of human activities on the earth, and their forms reflect social and cultural forms. Landscape resilience is the ability of a landscape or an ecosystem to adapt to and recover from environmental uncertainties and impacts such as hurricanes, droughts, floods, geological disasters, and pollution. It mirrors the sustainability of ecosystem services and landscapes. Compared with the top-down authoritative hierarchies, a polycentric governance model can ensure effective protection and smart use of public assets so as to enhance landscape resilience. To understand why this is true, it is necessary to understand the Peach Blossom Land context.
The Peach Blossom Land is an ideal Chinese landscape, and the "ideal" here is sending two messages - an ideal social governance model and an ideal landscape pattern. According to Chinese poet Tao Yuanming's Peach Blossom Spring, once there was a fisherman accidentally encountering a secluded village, called Peach Blossom Land. People lived there to avoid the chaos of the Qin Dynasty. The fisherman was surprised that they were completely cut off from the world and had not even known about the dynastic changes in centuries. They lived in an autonomous grassroots society far away from the centralized system of prefectures and counties, and exorbitant taxes or levies. The neighborly relationship within the community enabled the doors left unlocked and everyone was treated honestly and equally. The communication was so open that the news of the fisherman's arrival spread quickly. Then, the fisherman was invited to have shared meals and drinks. Moreover, the rows of houses were aligned on the smooth and flat land, and fertile farmlands, ponds, mulberry gardens, and bamboo forests composed the surroundings. In a long period of nearly 600 years, the generations there had maintained a sustainable and productive landscape where human beings and nature lived in harmony - a model of landscape resilience.
While the Peach Blossom Land may be fictional, it is not difficult to find such real places exist between China's beautiful mountains and rivers. The initial conception of this ideal world makes a stable Agricultural Civilization for thousands of years in China. Among numerous agricultural cultural landscapes in China, the ancient Huizhou Region in Eastern China appeals to me particularly, which perfectly demonstrates both the polycentric social governance and landscape resilience. Across the inter-connected basins, compact villages lie around the bottom of hills. Tidy houses are hidden between the forests at the village entrances and mountains at the backside, while other spaces are interspersed by fertile farmlands, ponds, mulberry gardens, and bamboo forests. Straight paths cross the fields; rivers and canals meander, and ponds and reservoirs intersperse densely. For centuries, with extremely limited natural resource, such systems maintain the survival of the local generations in each village. The ancestral halls are the venue and the main body for decision-making among different clansmen, supplemented by official institutions such as Xunjiansi (an ancient patrol division), making the region a polycentric-governance community. Temples for the land god, the water god, and the mountain god, as well as Taoist, Buddhist, and Neo-Confucianism academies formed a diverse system of ethical and spiritual beliefs. Under these multiple factors, a social governance model based on family disciplines, clan rules, folk beliefs, and ethics, supplemented by the imperial power, has maintained the resilience and sustainability of the beautiful and productive ecological landscape, making itself a Peach Blossom Land in the hilly area in Southeast China and free from natural disasters and wars.
The Industrial Civilization has unified the market, standardized technologies, enlarged capital flows, and led to a top-down social management model. These practices have eroded China's landscape resilience: the meandering rivers are now replaced by concrete canals, the ponds that once addressed droughts and floods now have been occupied as cultivated lands, and the low-lying slab weirs used for distributing water resources have been transformed into higher and larger cement dams. Worse, various native crops are disappearing due to the prevailing monoculture that heavily relies on fertilizers and pesticides, while greenhouses now are filled with anti-seasonal crops. Nevertheless, it is fortunate to see the effect, especially in rural areas, of Beautiful China Construction under the Ecological Civilization - a return of Peach Blossom Lands!

Operationalizing Polycentricity for Landscape Resilience
作者：刘伟 LIU Wei
Landscapes are complex adaptive social-ecological systems that encompass human and natural and built environments, and provide essential public and common goods to societies. Facing fast socio-economic, environmental, and policy changes and increasing uncertainties, building resilience has emerged as a main objective for landscape planning, design, and management. A key strategy to make landscape social-ecological systems resilient is to form appropriate governance forms that can be responsive and adaptive to external shocks and other stressors. Polycentricity is such a form that has been proven to enhance resilience. By analyzing a variety of cases, it demonstrates polycentricity — both its breadth of inclusion and collaborative degree - can affect governance outcomes. This is the best of times to become more plural in theory and methodology in order to have a stronger capacity of navigating the complexities of landscape social-ecological systems.

Designing a Resilient Waterscape Using a Living Lab and Catalyzing Polycentric Governance作者：奥德•赞格拉夫－哈梅德，朱丽叶•马丁，格尔德•鲁普，乔安妮•林内鲁斯－拜耳，史蒂文•鲍莱特 Aude ZINGRAFF-HAMED, Juliette MARTIN, Gerd LUPP, Joanne LINNEROOTH-BAYER, Stephan PAULEIT
The both polycentric governance and Living Labs concepts are based on decentralized participatory planning, co-design, and decision-making. While the concept of Living Lab is still emerging, the Isar-Plan (2000 ~ 2011) pioneered the approach for selecting, co-designing, and implementing nature-based solutions along the Isar River in Munich, Germany. Despite multiple governing authorities involved in the decision-making process of the Isar-Plan, the polycentric governance that led to the success of the project has to date not been analyzed. This paper presents the results of an ex-post-analysis of the Isar-Plan restoration planning process based on stakeholder interviews and a literature review. The contribution describes the evolution of Isar-Plan governance arrangements and discusses the Living Lab approaches to cooperative governance. The analysis demonstrates how polycentricity facilitated trust, learning, and the co-design of a resilient waterscape. The paper concludes that Living Labs can be a way of applying polycentric governance when autonomous and multi-scale decision-makers are collaboratively involved in the design of policy solutions, and vice-versa.

Compensating Flood Retention on Private Land in Austria: Towards Polycentric Governance in Flood Risk Management?
作者：卢卡斯•拉什纳，拉尔夫•诺德贝克，亚瑟•辛德艾格，瓦尔特•塞赫 Lukas LÖSCHNER, Ralf NORDBECK, Arthur SCHINDELEGGER, Walter SEHER
Flood retention, in particular controlled flood retention, plays an increasingly prominent role in the portfolio of flood risk management strategies. Though a highly effective measure to reduce the risk of flooding for vulnerable areas, flood retention is land-intensive and infringes on landowners' property rights. Implementation efforts are thus often hampered by the lack of availability of land as well as by the growing demands of (agricultural) landowners for compensation of flood retention services. The proliferation of flood retention not only changes riparian land uses but also results in a shift of authority, power, and agency to lower levels of government as well as to non-governmental actors, including the private landowners who provide the land for flooding but also those who benefit from flood retention. By the example of a compensation scheme for the controlled flood retention in Altenmarkt, an alpine municipality in Austria, this paper explores these nascent forms of governance through the lens of polycentricity. Along five core propositions in polycentric theory, the paper evaluates the governance implications of flood retention compensation in Austria and discusses the possibilities and limitations of flood retention for enhancing landscape resilience in riparian areas.

Polycentric Governance in Nature-Based Solutions: Insights from Melbourne Urban Forest Managers
作者：卡米罗•奥多内兹 Camilo ORDÓÑEZ
Nature-based solutions can help build resilience in urban landscapes. New governance arrangements have been suggested for assisting local governments in implementing nature-based solutions. A dominant nature-based solution initiative is the activities and policies directed at the increase of the number of trees and tree-canopy coverage in a city. This study explores how polycentric governance of urban forests may operate by focusing on how key decision-makers coordinate their priorities and actions in urban forestry decisions. A stakeholder-centered view on polycentric governance is taken, specifically focused on the view of municipal managers, to develop a better understanding of the social systems behind the implementation of nature-based solutions. This was done by using social data elicited from 19 in-depth interviews with urban forest managers working in nine local councils in Greater Melbourne, Australia. The data analyses show that the most important decisions that municipal managers make, and where other stakeholders have the most influence, relate to tree removal for developments, significant tree retention, tree planting for site renewal, and ageing trees removal. The most important stakeholders influencing these decisions include other municipal departmental units, developers, state actors, and residents. Non-governmental greening groups do not play a very important role. Various types of coordination, such as the ones between municipal departments, between non-governmental stakeholders (especially developers and residents), between state government policies, as well as public consultation, are needed to better mobilize stakeholders' influence and input. Capitalizing on greening groups that aim to retain trees in urban areas, not just planting more trees, can potentially support the current decisions made by municipal managers, which respond to urbanization pressures.

Polycentric Governance and Resilience Enhancement for Mountain Landscapes in Metropolitan Areas: The Case of the Santa Monica Mountains, the USA
作者：李正，裴欣 LI Zheng, PEI Xin
Globally, accelerated urbanization has wrapped more and more mountain landscapes into metropolitan areas as water sources or residential and recreational spaces. Such mountain landscapes are usually governed by multiple agencies, which means that its sustainable development largely depends on the effectiveness of the collective actions among these agencies. This paper examines the case of the Santa Monica Mountains in California, the United States by analyzing relevant oral histories, acts and ordinances, study reports, planning documents, and GIS data to depict the whole picture of the evolution of its cooperative planning and management. It is found that the polycentric governance in the Santa Monica Mountains emerged as a response to the deterioration of natural resource and the increasing outdoor recreation needs against the backdrop of urbanization. The California State government developed coastal zone protection guidelines and established conservancies, while the federal government cooperated with local governments and communities by forming a national recreation area. These methods helped the governing agencies tactically cope with the real estate development, changing political climate, shrinking financial allocation, rising land prices, and conceptual shifts in environmental protection. This polycentric governance mode was also applied to other mountain areas in the vicinity to form a regional-scale resilient landscape. The authors argue that the case of the Santa Monica Mountains reveals how the polycentric governance works on strengthening landscape resilience, which shows an important reference for contemporary China.

Evaluation of the Normalisasi Policy in Jakarta, Indonesia Using System Dynamics
作者：黄志隆，纳瓦鲁恩•瓦尔马，扎卡里•亚伦•史密斯 Edwin Setiadi SUGENG, Navarun VARMA, Zachary Aaron SMITH
Governance deficit in Jakarta, Indonesia is often associated to its pressing issues of too much, too little, and too dirty water. Although flood has become an important political issue and the government is pushing a landscape change in the riverbank areas, the public policy in Jakarta has yet to comprehend the complex linkages between the gap in water provisioning and flooding.
Flood is one major issue that has affected Jakarta since as early as 1872. Subsequently, major flood events occurred with the most recent being in 2015. To solve this problem, the government has implemented several policies, with the most recent one named as "Normalisasi." This policy focuses on increasing the flow capacity of the river to prevent it from overflowing during heavy rain events. Under this policy, the government claims eviction of informal settlements from the riverbank areas; widening rivers and canals; and dredging the river beds. Many scholars have criticized the overly technocratic framing of this policy, its covert agenda for attracting investments in infrastructure development in catchment areas, lack of empathy towards informal settlers, along with lack of vision for an inclusive and resilient socio-hydrological system.
This study uses system dynamics modeling to illustrate the interplay of social and hydro-geomorphological factors leading to Jakarta's vulnerability to flooding and to evaluate the policy response of Normalisasi against this vulnerability and future risk scenarios. The model is further used to test and compare two categories of policy strategies of increasing dredging efficacy and an integrated waterscape policy. Though the former seemed cost-efficient in short term and less complex in terms of governance, the latter will help in long-term resilience as it considers the Jakarta flooding issue more holistically with future climate risks. However, implementation of such an integrated waterscape policy requires the institutionalization of polycentric governance and also needs a boundary organization to increase participation of diverse actors across governance levels.

Making Cities Water-Wise and Climate-Resilient — Lessons and Experience from the Cape Town Drought
作者：吉娜•希尔翁戈，马克•纽，刘伟 Gina ZIERVOGEL, Mark NEW, LIU Wei
Half of humanity now lives in cities and the net in-flow of population into cities will continue. Among all challenges faced by cities, the provisioning for water and sanitation is probably the most pressing one. From 2017 to 2018, the city of Cape Town in South Africa frequently made itself media headlines around the world, in many languages, for its severe water shortage due to consecutive years of drought that later resulted in a water crisis. Fortunately, the potential "Day Zero" when the city would run out of water, did not arrive. However, the crisis exposed a lack of resilience in the city's water supply system in the face of ongoing climate change and a governance gap for climate adaptation. Many cities, especially those in the Global South, can learn from Cape Town's experience and lessons on how to enhance governance to become more climate-resilient. Mark New and Gina Ziervogel, the interviewees, have been devoting themselves to studying about the Cape Town drought, and working on establishing the Cape Town Drought Response Learning Initiative. In this article, they analyzed the influence of climate change on Cape Town drought and the water supply system, and suggested effective methods to address and prevent the drought and water shortage. Ziervogel briefly described her adaptive and water-sensitive city framework while both of them revealed the role of Cape Town Drought Response Learning Initiative in making Cape Town more resilient.

A Discussion on Institutional Improvement for Ecological Civilization and Landscape Governance in China
作者：张振威 ZHANG Zhenwei
With the development of landscape discipline and governance theories, "landscape governance" has become a new frontier of inter-disciplinary research, and is considered a sub-topic and extension of "environmental governance." Institution is an important factor to the development of landscape governance theory and practice. Since the Eighteenth National Congress of the Communist Party of China in 2012, the construction of Ecological Civilization has marked itself a new milestone for its systematic top-down design and institution-oriented efforts. At the same time, the Third Plenary Session of the Eighteenth Central Committee of the Communist Party of China in 2013 proposed to improve the contemporary national governance system and capacity, and took governance as a new means to evaluate state capacities and state-society relations. Both of them will significantly impact landscape planning, design, protection, and management in China.
This article reviews the evolution of western landscape governance theories driven by 1) the emphasis on the spatial scale effect of landscape; 2) the exploration of the regional variety of cultural and collective identities of local landscapes; and 3) the emphasis on the practice of landscape governance. It also examines the opportunities in China's landscape governance brought by the institutional improvement of Ecological Civilization, which might help: resolve the inherent conflicts that cause the existing environmental and ecological problems; enhance China's capacity on landscape governance; establish a new land-use management system with a greater ecological security and broader ecosystem services; endow landscapes with more public benefits; cultivate a civil society and democracy in landscape governance; and, influence the education and research of Landscape Architecture in multiple dimensions. Finally, the article proposes roadmaps for China's landscape governance at both global and national scales.

A Colorado Legacy: Interstate 25 Conservation Corridor Master Plan
作者：理查德•肖 Richard SHAW
Colorado's Front Range runs parallel to Interstate 25 from the Wyoming border to the Colorado Springs, offering some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. This area of the United States was growing fast and development and construction continued to change the skyline. Colorado Conservation Trust Fund, in collaboration with Design Workshop Inc., initiated the Interstate 25 Conservation Corridor Master Plan to engage conservation organizations, government entities, private landowners, and residents in conserving open lands to forever protect scenic vistas, water quality, wildlife, clean air, and recreational opportunities along the corridor. Devised to offer solutions to the surrounding uncontrolled sprawl, the plan leveraged unique planning methods and limited development strategies to achieve what had been previously considered impossible: the preservation of over 100,000 acres of open space along Colorado's Front Range.

Shanghai Sanlin Valley Park — Landscape Design of an Urban Green Wedge
作者：张文沫，邢晓晔，陈嘉雯，聂雨晴 ZHANG Wenmo, XING Xiaoye, CHEN Jiawen, NIE Yuqing
As one of the eight major green wedges within Shanghai's overall urban planning in the city center, Sanlin Valley Park serves as an important intersection between ecological corridors along the Huangpu River and Shanghai's outer ring road. During the rapid urbanization process, the city's ecology has been facing constant deterioration. Furthermore, the city is experiencing an alarming loss of biodiversity, as well as increasingly severe urban heat island effect. To alleviate these issues, the project adopts a "valley" concept as the core of its design and utilizes thoughtful design strategies in five aspects: water management, wind corridors and micro-climates, ecosystem, transportation, and program and experience. With these strategies, the design team aims to improve the site's connectivity, restore its ecology, reshape habitats, create a resilient landscape, and forge a vibrant urban hub that can also serve as the city's ecological research base.
During the design process, the design team adopts certain principles of landscape practices within the USA — that a project should encourage public participation of all socio-economic levels and place emphasis on the experience and benefits of the public. This form of multi-lateral cooperation allows for the park to constantly have its design plan reviewed and improved. It also allows for iterative responses to issues on the ground during construction. Last but not least, it instigates careful considerations of how to manage the park and its ecosystem, both in terms of cost and feasibility. By adopting all of these principles, the design team aspires to truly accede to citizens' needs, all while introducing a sustainable ecosystem that would, ultimately, contribute to a much improved ecology and economy.

Freescape of Tirana, Albania
作者：威廉•鲍姆加德纳 William BAUMGARDNER
Tirana, capital of Albania, is a city where voices are silenced and identities remain opaque. With a tumultuous and dark history, Tirana's political landscape, which is inherent to public trust, has been fractured. Then, how can the public realm be reconceived to better express individual and collective voices? This project explores how cultural forms of identity, memory, and voice found in Albanian textiles can be interpreted at the urban scale. The master plan currently implemented in the city scarcely recognizes public spaces but allocates new poly-center developments. Grounding the project in one of these poly-centers, a derelict textile factory, cultural memory is interpreted, extracted, and manifested in a multi-faceted urban development. Such a process aims to operate as a business incubator, housing and public space, community agriculture, and transit-oriented development. This project aspires to reposition the city's history by excavating the past through soil remediation, new forms of labor, and community development. Unlocking this memory and restructuring its texture will form a liberated, vocal, and free public realm.

Ecological Restoration Based on a Regional Polycentric Governance Model — Regeneration of the Karez Water System in Turpan Region
作者：杜泽慧 DU Zeihui
With the population boom and the rapid industrial and agricultural development, regional water demand has exceeded the supply capacity in Turpan. Modern water infrastructure not only made the unique ecosystem formed by the Karez out-of-balance, but also devitalized the oasis civilization and the indigenous cultural landscape associated with the Karez. Taking the Karez system as an example, this article proposes planning and design schemes and roadmaps based on a regional polycentric governance model to explore a new path of public environmental governance which coordinates the interests of all stakeholders. Four strategies are proposed: 1) establishing the water account management system; 2) establishing an ecological agriculture water saving and control mechanism; 3) introducing an agriculture-husbandry-fishery circular development mode; and 4) revitalizing abandoned space. By re-identifying water supply and demand, rebalancing the existing resources and regional development, and encouraging the role of landscape as ecological infrastructure, resilient landscape and sustainable resource utilization could be realized to maximize the public interest.
