Land-use planning in the Moluccas: What of customary tenure security?

Land-use planning in the Moluccas: What of customary tenure security?

Governments use spatial planning as a public policy tool, in a “statutory system for regulating development and the use of land” (Jay 2010, 494). In practice, a spatial plan serves as a reference for development planning and infrastructure policy and for planning land uses. The value of spatial planning is that it enables governments to record the different land uses in an area, such as forest, industry or agriculture. Although much research has examined planning in developed countries, the connection between spatial planning and customary land tenure in developing countries is an emerging empirical field that merits greater research attention in development studies.
