5.7Resource Requirements and Performance Targets for DDP6:

5.7.1Issues and Strengths


Land use policies and programs are already in place. This is a strength in itself. The district has skilled personnel when it comes to land use, however it is worth noting that decentralization is still not implemented as funds are still centralized at the ministries and it becomes difficult for the district to plan. Another issue is the threat of HIV/AIDS on the manpower. The fact that policies and legislations that deal with land use planning are administered from different departments makes coordination difficult.
