This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of the current
Land and Soil policy framework and the related shortcomings,
especially in terms of policy cohesion and implementation, as
well as overall effectiveness. The subsequent sections present
case studies of different sets of legal and policy instruments,
economic tools and incentives, as well as policies and
programmes implemented across different countries. The case
studies were selected based on the criteria of regional balance,
different spatial scales, type of policies and/or governance
arrangements, plus their relevance to state and trends of land
resources as detailed in Chapter 8 of this report.
