Innovations in Land Use Planning in the Greater Mekong Subregion

The Greater Mekong Subregion’s (GMS) Core Environment Program (CEP) has contributed to better land governance in the subregion since 2006 through its focus on holistic land valuation and integrated land use planning. The CEP support included village participatory land use planning in biodiversity corridors, developing land use change modeling tools, and analyzing the geographical suitability of a pipeline of GMS investments totaling more than $50 billion.

Drawing on a decade of CEP experience, this brief provides an overview of land use planning challenges and opportunities in the subregion. It then introduces two tools—the CLUMondo land allocation model and Spatial Multicriteria Assessment—both of which have the potential to greatly improve the environmental and social sustainability of land use planning and management in the GMS.
