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.
