Land use planning

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter


A city or local government area that has not
implemented land use planning indicate hazardous
behavior that might trigger a future catastrophe, at
the local level only, but with huge consequences,
e.g. in megacities. Regrettably such situations,
even in the world of 21st century, continue to
happen. As long as communities live more and
more distant from nature, as they adapt their
environment to live in, the need for land use
planning and intelligent urban planning grows
significantly. Nevertheless, land use plans or
management systems are rather “static” in nature
related to response to a hazard, as already
indicated in the introduction chapter.
