Land Use Planning and Policy Implication: Bridging Between Science, Politics and Decision Making
We describe land use planning based on the six main functions and uses of soil and land. Policy input is mainly needed to control the competition between different land uses, avoiding or minimising irreversible impacts. For achieving this, we describe an indicator framework, which allows for planning and controlling complex land use systems.
