Toelichting (Engels) Nature and agriculture utilize the ecosystem services provided by River Rhine. However, intensive agriculture causes various environmental problems. Achieving sustainable production while preserving the environment is a challenge in the agriculture sector. One emerging concept that optimizes ecosystem services and strengthens biodiversity is nature-inclusive farming. This research does not intend to develop a new concept but rather explore the potential contribution to sustainable socio-ecological management. It assesses the spatial characteristics, land ownership, and land use in four case studies using mixed methods. Understanding system dynamics helps identify socio-ecological indicators, spatial measures, and transitional challenges. This research found out that nature-inclusive farming has a promising role in integrating various sectors (agriculture, nature, and peri-urban development) in order to facilitate the transition towards sustainable socio-ecological management in the peri-urban floodplain.
