Examination of sustainable land management at the urban scale

Main Article Content


The rapid and uncontrolled growth of the world population is a pressure factor on natural resources and lands. This pressure causes the uncontrolled use and consumption of both natural resources and lands. In the last century, cities have been growing both in terms of population and area, and agricultural lands have been transformed into urban areas. This means the shrinkage of agricultural lands and there are worrying consequences for the future of our world. In order for the world to be a more livable place and to meet the needs of future generations, it is inevitable that the sustainability approach should be adopted in every field. Preventing the narrowing of agricultural lands and using urban lands by managing them correctly is related to how correctly the land management is applied. However, when land management is considered together with the basic principle of sustainability, it can contribute to the future of our world and minimize the pressure factors. In this study, by looking at land management with the basic principle of sustainability, examinations were made on the Izmir Tire city sample and sustainable suggestions were made for urban lands through zoning implementations and parcellation plans. As a result, it was emphasized that zoning implementations and land requiring expropriation should be planned from the perspective of sustainable land management and brought to the city.
