Abstract
Land use is being fundamentally transformed worldwide. Governance mechanisms that manage land use are changing from territorial organizations to global institutions anchored to specifi c resource fl ows between urban and rural areas. This shift refl ects an underlying change of values attached to land, from the creation of new monetary values to the assertion of social values. Such a revalorization has, in turn, fueled global competition and led to governance arrangements that may appear fragmented from the vantage point of any particular land plot. In addition, rising urbanization impacts and refl ects governance arrangements for land use. This chapter addresses the governance of land use in an urban era, with a focus on the emergence of global arrangements to address land competition and the telecoupling effects that arise between coupled multiscalar systems.
