Övers. från förf:s svenska orig.-ms.
Improvement of land management is an urgent question everywhere. Land resources are limited, population is increasing and the need for better land use is often obvious. Sustainable development and environmental care are main goals. Which responsibilities and possibilities do public authorities and institutions have to reach these and related goals? Which policies should be choosen, which means are available, which measures might be taken and how can the public and private sectors co-operate? This book is devoted to such questions and it provides an overview of relevant issues in rural and urban surroundings in both industrial and developing countries.
