Land-use planning is the process of regulating the use of land in an effort to promote more desirable social and environmental outcomes as well as a more efficient use of resources. Goals of land use planning may include environmental conservation, restraint of urban sprawl, minimization of transport costs, prevention of land use conflicts, and a reduction in exposure to pollutants.

Land use planning remains largely sectorised and unintegrated, is usually centralised and top-down. There is little effective participation in land use planning by the supposed beneficiaries.

These issues have been considered in collaboration with partner institutions in Sri Lanka and Tanzania who have undertaken separate country case studies.

Permaculture, a contraction of permanent agriculture, is a promising design system for the application of agroecology. It was developed in Australia in the s based on agroecology and.aquaculture land use. For non-agricultural and non-forest land use, the Standard International Statistical Classification for Land Use adopted by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and modified by Eurostat seems to be appropriate one to be adopted (which is to be added and not completed yet in this paper).

Thus, land use is the backbone of agricultural economies and it provides substantial economic and social benefits. Land use change is necessary and essential for economic development and social progress. Land use change, however, does not come without costs (see Table 1). Conversion of farmland and forests to.
