The objective of land use planning is to ensure that land and its resources are used efficiently for the benefit of the wider economy and population, while protecting the environment. 

Land management is the process of managing the use and development (in both urban and rural settings) ofland resources. Land resources are used for a variety of purposes which may include organic agriculture, reforestation, water resource management and eco-tourism projects.



Land investment is referred to as a long term investment and with land prices on the rise in many parts of the world, it is said to be the safest and smartest way of investing ones money.

A 15 de diciembre de 2017, habían sido asesinados 185 activistas medioambientales. El 2017 podría ser el más mortífero para los defensores del medio ambiente. ¿Qué está pasando?

 

Cada año la cifra de eventos violentos contra líderes indígenas, campesinos, periodistas o cualquier persona que esté defendiendo su derecho al uso legítimo de tierras y recursos, está en aumento. Nunca fue más peligroso luchar por la defensa del agua, de los bosques o del aire que respiramos.

La wilaya de Chlef a pu conserver sa place parmi les rares zones de production des agrumes dans le pays. La superficie globale, qui était de 5200 ha à l’indépendance du pays, a augmenté pour atteindre 6480 ha, et cela grâce au lancement de programmes publics de développement et à l’ouverture du secteur aux investisseurs privés. Cette fois, ce sont des opérateurs du Golfe qui ont manifesté leur intention d’investir dans cette activité agricole.
