Tiivistelmä

Land quality changes are a major driver of biodiversity loss (IPBES 2018). Most of Earth’s habitable land is in active human use for habitation and food production (Ritchie and Riser 2013). Therefore, the use of human-managed lands or landscapes is a crucial question for environmental ethics. It includes questions of the impact of human practices on the quality and usability of landscapes for nonhumans and how the spatial organisation of human activities impacts on the prospects of the diversity of nonhuman coexistence and flourishing on human-used areas. It is urgent to create tools and understanding about environmental landscape ethics to establish arguments and frameworks for assessing and addressing how humans use areas they nevertheless will continue to use. The proposed project, COHAB, aims to establish the field of environmental landscape ethics and the key analytical framework, based on the notion of cohabitability, for it by creating interdisciplinary constructed, ecologically informed theoretical argumentation, methods, and conceptual tools. Together these results contribute to addressing land use and management and urban and rural / agricultural environments in environmental ethics appropriately. Theoretical and conceptual results will also be tested in practice to create scientifically credible and societally relevant ethics.
