Résumé
This study explores the role of place attachment for public acceptance of landscape restoration projects in order to help reach globally set restoration goals. To reach this goal a case study on a landscape restoration project in the Baviaanskloof, South Africa, was conducted. The conceptual framework combines literature on place attachment and place attachment disruption to study how changes, due to the project, (do not) disrupt pre-existing attachments to place and the resulting behavioural response of the local farmers. The methods consist of fourteen interviews (eleven interviews with local people and four expert interviews), participant observations, and a literature review. The results give an overview of local people’s attachments to place and show strong attachments to place, the Baviaanskloof. The landscape restoration project hardly causes any disruption to these existing attachments, resulting in local peoples acceptance and support towards the project. Important for the public acceptance of the project were the cultivation of existing attachments, and a slow process with only small changes. The overall conclusion is that cultivating place attachment in a landscape restoration project can help to gain public acceptance and support towards landscape restoration projects.
