Integrated land-use planning (ILUP) is a prerequisite for the sustainable management and development of land resources. This approach seeks to meet this objective by a better balancing of all relevant aspects (biophysical, technical, socio-economic, legal, institutional and social) in land-use planning. In particular, it stresses the importance of engaging the stakeholders and recognizing their different objectives through a platform for negotiationoutlining the characteristics of an enabling institutional and policy environment at local, sub-national, and national levelsensuring an accessible knowledge baseand providing a set of planning procedures. The guidelines which were the topic of this workshop are intended to be used by professional and technical practitioners of land-use planning and land resource management at national, subnational and village levels.
