Land use planning as a response to current constraints and challenges of development.
Land use planning in the context of development cooperation is an iterative process based on the dialogue amongst the all stakeholders aiming to define sustainable land uses in rural areas. It also implies the initiation and monitoring of measures to realize the agreed land uses.
Land use planning creates the preconditions required to achieve a type of land use that is environmentally sustainable, socially just and desirable and economically sound. It thereby activates social processes of decision making and consensus building concerning the utilization and protection of private, communal or public areas.
