The present study, by the Chief of the Agrarian and Water Law Section of the FAO Legislation Branch, is intended to explore in greater depth the value of legislation to the land use planning process. It is, on the one hand, an exploration of the ways in which legislation serves to provide the structural underpinnings for and connections between the technical disciplines which have long been associated with the land use planning effort. It is also intended as a practical guide for lawyers or planners who may be faced with the task of framing or implementing land use legislation and who thus require a solid understanding of the disciplines of law and planning and how they are related. It is our hope that the reader will find the study more than sufficient to meet both of these purposes.
