In the subsequent chapters we will explain the concepts followed in the work of EcoStab. These concepts will be basic for understanding the approach of our work. There are some points common to the concepts outlined in the next chapters:
- the protection of soil (qualitative as well as quantitative) through the use of vegetation
- minimizing technical industrial material through the use of local resources
- the principle of "no protection without gain"
- biodiversity as major factor for resilience
"We can better understand the environment in relation to development and we can better understand development in relation to the environment, because they cannot and should not be distinguished as separate entities."
