Abstract

Developing countries offer opportunities to introduce integrated approaches to land-use planning before the industrialisation process adversely affects the environment. India has seen a marked increase in both population and industrial activity in recent years, and while positive consequences include improved communications and literacy, poorly planned growth has exacerbated social inequalities, damaged the environment, and compromised the delivery of ecosystem services. In this paper the potential for landscape character and ecosystem services assessment to be integrated into land use planning in India is explored using Gujarat, the most rapidly industrialising region, as a case study.
