ABSTRACTED FROM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
This review does not attempt to be comprehensive. Instead, we highlight:
benchmarks in the evolution of land use policies in Sri Lanka;
the actual contribution made to decisions about land use by systematic information on land resources.
Recommendations are made to provide better support for decision-makers at all levels. A summary of legislation, a list of agencies responsible for planning and land resources data and an extensive sourced bibliography are provided.
