With these guidelines,we start an attempt to develop a meaningful understanding, to give guidance and to establish standards in planning land use.In the process of doing so, a certain amount of leeway shall be maintained in order to take regional and local peculiarities into consideration when using the land use planning approach.The concept of LUP considers regional and local conditions in order to meet their peculiarities in an optimal way. Consequently, Land Use Planning: Methods, Strategies and Tools are rather guidelines than a classic manual offering a blueprint. It brings together important ideas and experiences which should be adapted and applied to the specific working conditions in a project. The application for these guidelines is exclusively targeted at rural regions.Urban centres are therefore not included. The content is divided into seven chapters,which are assigned to three different subjects. Chapters 1 and 2 define the policy and planning framework of the GTZ- concept to land use planning.Chapter 3 introduces the components for the organisation of an implementation- orientated planning process. Chapters 4 to 7 discuss, some important aspects of implementation and of land use planning in greater detail. Additional questions arising in the various chapters are dealt with in the eight appendices.
