Thus the landscape can be seen as a material part of society's body, expressing its immaterial identity in that landscape. This perception indicates the comparison of Maslow's human motivations to prerequisites for a sustainable landscape management. Nature's survival (sustainable biosphere development) is a prerequisite for society's survival (its sustainable development), which again is a prerequisite for human identity's survival (its sustainable development).

So there are also several targets a sustainable landscape management has to meet. For each target there are several criteria that can be used to assess the degree in which the management meets that target. Now for each criterion there are several parameters that can be chosen to assess the degree in which that criterion is met in a satisfying way.
