It also utilized these factors in developing effective strategies for cultivation of these groups of plants in landscaping of the metropolitan city of Mashhad, Iran. It would be crucial for...
Fracking equity: A spatial justice analysis prototype
01. Januar 2018
Publication date: January 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 70 Author(s): Qingmin Meng Although current environmental justice analyses shed light on fracking and fracking’s environmental and public health policy, a comprehensive justice analysis framework is needed in order to cover the policy gap of fracking impacts on the total environment, communities, and sustainability. Based on a concise summary of the effects of fracking on the total environment, the society and economy, and land use, this brief communication designs a conception of fracking equity and its spatial justice...

Early adoption of conservation agriculture practices: Understanding partial compliance in programs with multiple adoption decisions
01. Januar 2018
Publication date: January 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 70 Author(s): Patrick S. Ward, Andrew R. Bell, Klaus Droppelmann, Tim G. Benton Land degradation and soil erosion have emerged as serious challenges to smallholder farmers throughout Southern Africa. To combat these challenges, conservation agriculture (CA) – a suite of agricultural practices consisting of zero tillage, mulching of crop residues, and intercropping with legumes – is widely promoted as a “sustainable” package of agricultural practices. Despite the many potential benefits of CA, however...
Reconceptualising translation in agricultural innovation: A co-translation approach to bring research knowledge and practice closer together
01. Januar 2018
Publication date: January 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 70 Author(s): Julie Ingram, Janet Dwyer, Peter Gaskell, Jane Mills, Pieter de Wolf Scientific research continues to play a significant role in meeting the multiple innovation challenges in agriculture. If this role is to be fulfilled, provision needs to be made for effective translation of research outputs, where translation is understood to be the process whereby science becomes part of useful knowledge for decision making. There is increasing interest in enhancing translation in the European agricultural...
Uses of the word ‘landskap’ in Swedish municipalities’ comprehensive plans: Does the European Landscape Convention require a modified understanding?
01. Januar 2018
Publication date: January 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 70 Author(s): Ulf G. Sandström, Per Hedfors This paper examines the potential of Swedish comprehensive plans and thematic additions to such plans in the implementation of the European Landscape Convention (ELC): specifically by comparing how the word landscape is used. First, we reviewed a selection of Swedish municipal comprehensive plans by recording the use of variations of the term landscape. Second, we studied the contextual usage of these recorded variations to see if it was compatible with the seemingly holistic...

Estimating welfare impacts where property rights are contested: methodological and policy implications
01. Januar 2018
Publication date: January 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 70 Author(s): O. Sarobidy Rakotonarivo, Jette Bredahl Jacobsen, Mahesh Poudyal, Alexandra Rasoamanana, Neal Hockley Where rights over natural resources are contested, the effectiveness of conservation may be undermined and it can be difficult to estimate the welfare impacts of conservation restrictions on local people. In particular, researchers face the dilemma of estimating respondents’ Willingness To Pay (WTP) for rights to resources, or their Willingness To Accept (WTA) compensation for foregoing these rights...
The effects of rural development policy on land rights distribution and land use scenarios: The case of oil palm in the Peruvian Amazon
01. Januar 2018
Publication date: January 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 70 Author(s): Aoife Bennett, Ashwin Ravikumar, Peter Cronkleton Decades of development history show that rural agricultural policies and government support for specific en vogue crops can seriously alter land rights, land tenure regimes and land use strategies for local people in tropical forests. Today, oil palm is such a crop, and it is an emergent commodity that is proliferating in the Peruvian Amazon. This paper asks: How is government interest in promoting oil palm development affecting property rights...

Population stress: A spatiotemporal analysis of population change and land development at the county level in the contiguous United States, 2001–2011
01. Januar 2018
Publication date: January 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 70 Author(s): Guangqing Chi, Hung Chak Ho The past century has witnessed rapidly increasing population-land conflicts due to exponential population growth and its many consequences. Although the measures of population-land conflicts are many, there lacks a model that appropriately considers both the social and physical contexts of population-land conflicts. In this study we introduce the concept of population stress, which identifies areas with populations growing faster than the lands available for sustainable...
Land use, energy retraining and new instruments of negotiation in Italy: The case of Trieste
01. Januar 2018
Publication date: January 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 70 Author(s): Riccardo Laterza The paper discusses the Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) not only as a planning instrument related to land use and development purposes, but also as an instrument of energy policy related to building energy retraining, as it has been developed in the frame of the new Piano Regolatore Generale Comunale (Municipality Land Use Plan) of Trieste, a city in the North-East of Italy. In this case study TDR is developed as a hybrid instrument, aimed at regulating, motivating and negotiating at the...
Development density, administrative decisions, and land values: An empirical investigation
01. Januar 2018
Publication date: January 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 70 Author(s): Michal Gluszak, Robert Zygmunt The paper addresses the links between planning uncertainty and land values, from theoretical and empirical perspective. We investigated land prices in a western part of Krakow (Poland) using a sample of 419 property sales from 2002 to 2014. We used spatial hedonic models to explore the relations between planning and building decisions, development density and land values. We found that administrative decisions (development and building permits) are capitalized in sales prices...
A framework for selecting a fit-for-purpose data collection method in land administration
01. Januar 2018
Publication date: January 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 70 Author(s): Shima Rahmatizadeh, Abbas Rajabifard, Mohsen Kalantari, Serene Ho The majority of the world’s population do not have access to proper land administration systems to register their land and property information. The land community has come to believe that this problem is strongly related to the data collection process, where the use of highly accurate, expensive and time-consuming spatial data collection methods such as field surveying, is overemphasised. To overcome this, innovative spatial data...
Co-opting and resisting market based instruments for private land conservation
01. Januar 2018
Publication date: January 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 70 Author(s): Benjamin Cooke, Gabriella Corbo-Perkins The increasing popularity of private land conservation (PLC) globally has quickly translated into an array of polices and programs aimed at achieving ecological benefits. The growth of PLC is entwined with the rise of neoliberal governance, with private land proving congruous with the promotion of market-based instruments (MBIs) and the reliance on private protected areas for conservation in lieu of government investment in public lands. Despite a growing literature...
Mapping and characterising the urban agricultural landscape of two intermediate-sized Ghanaian cities
01. Januar 2018
Publication date: January 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 70 Author(s): Heather Mackay Extending beyond previous research biases towards large cities or analyses based largely on one type of urban agriculture (UA) (such as market gardening, or home gardening), this research aimed to investigate all forms of UA within two intermediate-sized Ghanaian cities (Techiman and Tamale). Where was being farmed? For whom, and why? The paper considers how findings compare to Ghana’s larger cities, and possible implications for theory and for planning. Methods included remote sensing, field...

The factors were broadly categorised into economic, agro-ecological, institutional...
Adoption and Abandonment of Partial Conservation Technologies in Developing Economies: The Case of South Asia
01. Januar 2018
Publication date: January 2018 Source:Land Use Policy, Volume 70 Author(s): Alwin D’Souza, Ashok K. Mishra Conservation agriculture (CA), a resource saving production system, could increase marginal farmers’ incomes and sustainable agricultural systems, but adoption of CA includes the adoption of multiple technologies in the form of a package. Consequently, a complete adoption of a package of full CA technologies could be costly in the developing countries. Alternatively, encouraging the adoption of a complete package of CA technologies, in some cases, partial adoption of...
