One of the thorniest challenges in regional planning is the transition from unsustainable productivist rural landscapes to a new natural resource economy (NNRE). This transition promises modern multifunctional landscapes characterized by environmental restoration activities, alternative food and energy production, eco and farm tourism, and amenity migration. This paper charts the history and analyses the underpinning conceptual frameworks and institutional responses of the transition to a NNRE. We find that regional planning researchers must pay attention to: 1) the policy instrument mix; 2) the institutional design; and 3) the monitoring and evaluation regime in order to ensure an integrated NNRE.
