Publication date: February 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 91Author(s): Angélica Guerra, Fabio de Oliveira Roque, Letícia Couto Garcia, José Manuel Ochoa Ochao-Quintero, Paulo Tarso Sanches de Oliveira, Rafael Dettogni Guariento, Isabel M.D. RosaAbstractModeling scenarios can help identify drivers of and potential changes in land use, particularly in rapidly changing landscapes such as the tropics. One of the places where most of the recent anthropogenic land use changes have been occurring is the "arc of deforestation" of the Amazon, where several scenarios have been constructed...
An evaluation of contemporary China’s land use policy – The Link Policy: A case study from Ezhou, Hubei Province
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: February 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 91Author(s): Long Cheng, Gregory Brown, Yan Liu, Glen SearleAbstractEconomic reform in China has resulted in rapid urbanisation over the past three decades, changing the urban and rural landscape dramatically. A large amount of farmland was developed, leading to conflict between construction demand and farmland protection. In response, the “Link Policy” was proposed in 2005 that seeks to concurrently preserve farmland while providing for urban expansion through land exchange. The effectiveness of the Link Policy has not...
How do planners manage risk in alternative land development models? An institutional analysis of land development in the Netherlands
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: February 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 91Author(s): Philip O’Brien, Alex Lord, Sebastian DembskiAbstractWhile risk is a key concern in property development, it tends to be discussed by planners only relative to the effects of regulatory planning on private sector risk. Yet planning encompasses a broad range of activities that go beyond its function of regulating private sector development. Despite active approaches to land development being commonly used across different planning contexts, frameworks for analysing public sector strategies to address risk are...
Relationships between absenteeism, conservation group membership, and land management among family forest owners
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: February 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 91Author(s): Stephanie A. Snyder, Zhao Ma, Kristin Floress, Mysha ClarkeAbstractAbsentee landowners, or those who do not live on their forestland, own approximately 117 million acres of private forestland in the U.S. Thus, their land management decisions and activities influence the flow of forest-based goods and services. We explore the question of whether absentee family forest owners are less active land managers than resident landowners and whether membership in conservation organizations is associated with higher levels of...
Separate waste collection in mountain municipalities. A case study in Campania
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: February 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 91Author(s): Massimiliano Agovino, Gaetano MusellaAbstractThis paper aims to analyse the impact of land characteristics (i.e. altimetry and housing dispersion) on separate waste collection, with a focus on mountain municipalities. The high spatial heterogeneity of the driving factors of separate waste collection allows traditional techniques, such as OLS, to offer only a partial depiction of the situation, missing important information. In this view, we perform the Geographically Weighted Regression (GWR), which allows to...
Land consolidation and rural revitalization in China: Mechanisms and paths
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: February 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 91Author(s): Yang Zhou, Yamei Li, Chenchen XuAbstractLand consolidation has multi-functionality. Most of the existing researches focus on the supplementary function of cultivated land, but lack of systematic research on its function of promoting the sustainable development and revitalization of rural areas. In the context of the current global rural decline, land consolidation has been endowed with the connotation of promoting rural revitalization and regional sustainable development. This study systematically reviewed the...
Optimal allocation of direct and embodied arable land associated to urban economy: Understanding the options deriving from economic globalization
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: February 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 91Author(s): Xi Ji, Mengyao Han, Sergio UlgiatiAbstractLand resources do not flow directly but can be allocated as “embodied land” in goods and services during economic globalization. The term “embodied arable land” can help link local land allocation strategies to the global and national supply chains and trade activities, and suggest new lens in optimizing arable land allocation. China is facing a serious arable land shortage, especially in municipal administrative areas. Based on the nested input-output analysis...
A methodological proposal for the analysis of disused railway lines as territorial structuring elements: The case study of the Vasco-Navarro railway
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: February 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 91Author(s): Arritokieta Eizaguirre-Iribar, Olatz GrijalbaAbstractThe thousands of kilometres of disused railway lines that make up a fascinating body of heritage have been the subject of studies by several authors over recent decades. Several interventions for their reuse and reconversion have been carried out. However, there is a mismatch between theoretical and practical achievements. This research claims that an analysis of the railway lines under discussion should develop a comprehensive vision in order to establish common...
The effects of farmland use rights trading and labor outmigration on the governance of the irrigation commons: Evidence from China
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: February 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 91Author(s): Yiqing Su, Eduardo Araral, Yahua WangAbstractThe governance of the commons depends on collective action by resource users, which may be influenced by land use dynamics and changes in livelihood. We examine the case of China that has experienced massive outmigration of its rural population and significant changes to its land use policy. We contribute to the literature by examining the interaction effects of farmland use rights trading and rural labor out migration on collective action for the governance of the...
Local biophysical effects of land use and land cover change: towards an assessment tool for policy makers
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: February 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 91Author(s): Gregory Duveiller, Luca Caporaso, Raul Abad-Viñas, Lucia Perugini, Giacomo Grassi, Almut Arneth, Alessandro CescattiAbstractLand use and land cover change (LULCC) affects the climate through both biogeochemical (BGC) and biophysical (BPH) mechanisms. While BGC effects are assessed at global scale and are at the heart of climate treaties such as the Paris Agreement, BPH effects are totally absent despite their increasingly recognized impact, especially at local scale. This stems from the complexity in...
Farm households’ risk perception, attitude and adaptation strategies in dealing with climate change: Promise and perils from rural Pakistan

This study determines the farmers’ risk perception, risk attitude, adaptation measures and various aspects of vulnerability to climate change (e.g. floods, droughts, heavy rainfalls, pests and disease) at farm level in rural Pakistan. The risk perception and attitude of farm households are crucial factors that...
Monitoring land use and land cover changes in the mountainous cities of Oman using GIS and CA-Markov modelling techniques
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: February 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 91Author(s): Shawky Mansour, Mohammed Al-Belushi, Talal Al-AwadhiAbstractAs a result of the socioeconomic transformation, the rapid urban expansion of cities and towns in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states has predominately led to tremendous pressure on the limited natural resources and loss of productive lands. Indeed, the spatial patterns of urbanisation and their impacts on mountain resources and environment have received little attention, particularly in Oman. Predicting urban growth in the mountainous cities has the...

Publication date: January 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 90Author(s): Parham Pahlavani, Hossein Sheikhian, Behnaz BigdeliAbstractThe world is rapidly urbanized in the recent decades and urban areas are dealing with enormous changes and demands in utilizing the land units. To prevent incongruous land development, a seamless land use control planning tool, impowered by a decision support system is an imperative part of development management. This study focuses on evaluating the suitability of existing land uses through a spatial decision support system. Although the problem involves...
The public policy of agricultural land allotment to agrarians and its impact on crop productivity in Punjab province of Pakistan
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: January 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 90Author(s): Ehsan Elahi, Zainab Khalid, Cui Weijun, Huiming ZhangAbstractThe study estimates the impact of land allotment policy to agrarians on crop productivity in Punjab province of Pakistan. The term "agrarian" refers to a respondent who has formal education in agricultural sciences (agronomy, soil science, agricultrual economics, and horticulture etc.), otherwise known as "non-agrarian". In 2009 the Punjab government allotted agricultural plots to agrarians. A multistage sampling technique was used to collect data of 384...
Barriers to transformation towards participatory adaptation decision-making: Lessons from the Cork flood defences dispute
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: January 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 90Author(s): James JeffersAbstractThis paper analyses the causes and consequences of public participation failures in flood hazards management and the important lessons they offer for climate change adaptation. Despite the potential for participatory adaptation decision-making, scholarship on adaptation has remained largely separate from the literature on participatory environmental governance. This paper brings these literatures into conversation by applying the concept of transformation to both adaptation outcomes and...
Lake regions under human pressure in the context of socio-economic transition in Central-Eastern Europe: The case study of Olsztyn Lakeland, Poland
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: January 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 90Author(s): Grażyna Furgała-Selezniow, Małgorzata Jankun-Woźnicka, Mirosław MikaAbstractChanges in land use and land cover (LU/LC) are one of the main contributors to global change. The fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989 resulted in massive socio-economic and institutional transformations that triggered changes in the LU/LC. The paper analyses the processes of land use/cover change in the shore zone of 145 lakes of the Olsztyn Lakeland in north-eastern Poland based on GIS data sets over a period of 30 years. This is a new...
Unravelling the impact of street network structure and gated community layout in development-oriented transit design
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: January 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 90Author(s): Guibo Sun, Dugald Wallace, Chris WebsterAbstractWe investigate the associations between walking patterns and street network structure in the context of transit station development intended to create its own demand rather than serve existing demand, and an urban morphology dominated by gated communities in station areas. We record the complete actual walking routes of 3637 metro users from station exits to their destinations. We then extract pedestrian access behaviour from these routes, summarised by link use...
