Illustrated with empirical case studies from Europe, Africa and North America, this book provides an overview of the wide range of innovative methodologies, models and instruments currently being applied in the formation of and implementation of land management strategies. It examines techniques such as data acquisition, data modelling, the legal instruments of land management and structural theories and applications ranging from historic land use to current programmes of urban redevelopment. It then shows how these advance land management and development in practice.
