L-13 Land Use Planning Guidelines
During the last 120 years, Somalia and Somaliland have experienced great political and socio-economic changes. The change in land use policies and land use planning activities over those periods is considerable, with new governments often reversing measures taken by previous regimes. More or less continuous developments over all periods include growing population, expansion of agriculture (cropping), increased number of water points, sedentarization, tree cutting and expansion of rangeland enclosures.The purpose of the Land Use Planning Guidelines for Somaliland is to explain the principles and procedures of land use planning in general, and how it can be applied in Somaliland at various levels in particular.
