For the implementation and development of the instruments provided for in the Law, public administrations and companies require highly qualified professionals with multidisciplinary training, which at European level adopts the name of landscape architecture and has, in certain countries, a long tradition.
The need for society to train professionals specialized in this subject to work in companies and administrations that will have to continue developing this work in the coming years is evident, and that they also join other multidisciplinary teams to develop planning instruments urban planning and spatial planning that, with increasing intensity, demand greater attention and sensitivity towards the landscape.
