An Agro-ecological Zone is a land resource mapping unit, defined in terms of climate, landform and soils, and/or land cover, and having a specific range of potentials and constraints for land use. An Agro-ecological Cell (AEC) is defined by a unique combination of landform, soil and climatic characterist. The assessment of Agro-ecological Terroir Units for viticulture includes climate and soil environmental factors selected for their relevance at regional scale, with the use of state-of-the-art variables and indices appropriate for the specified regions. Remote sensing provides data and maps on land cover and land use and enables rapid and efficient monitoring of land use change, which is an essential element of land degradation assessments and a determinant of land use sustainability. Integrated packages: linking databases, GIS and models. The term «land use» encompasses not only land use for agricultural and forestry purposes, but also use of the land for settlements, industrial sites, roads and other human activities. Land use, in this meaning, can be termed sustainable only if is achieved such a spatial distribution or configuration of the different uses, as to guarantee biodiversity and preserve the eco-balance of the whole by: 4.

Ecological-economic zoning (EEZ) is an alternative approach to zoning which aims to correct the emphasis on physical factors and crop production in AEZ by including socio-economic factors and a wider range of land uses in zone definition. The concept of agro- ecological zones meets this requirement as it combines the characteristics of a climatic zone with a soil and landform map unit. When conceived as such the land suitability evaluation per agro-ecological zone and per land utilization type may provide a series of scenarios which can be used by decision makers for future land use implementation in its broadest by: 2.

Cover image: Important grazing and cropping land in the Blayney, Orange and Cabonne ocal l government areas, NSW Department of Primary Industries, [Pub16/]. use planning can be used to identify trends in land use that would be advantageous in the event of climate change. Suitable measures could be incorporated in national agricultural. Interactive multiobjective agro-ecological land use planning: The Bungoma region in Kenya. The development of a third world country requires a conscious balance between different planning and policy issues, such as population growth rate, gross national income, self-reliance and long-term sustainable ecological development. These are agro-environmental measures (AEM) and the support of less-favoured areas (LFA) that represents the above mentioned “agricultural” concept of rural development policy and strong emphasize on issues of land use planning.
