Land management is the process of managing the use and development (in both urban and rural settings) of land resources. Land resources are used for a variety of purposes which may include organic agriculture, reforestation, water resource management and eco-tourism projects. Land management can have very positive or negative affects on the natural ecosystems of the land. Land being over or misused can degrade and reduce productivity and dissrupt natural equilibriums.[1]
