Abstract: From Introduction: "The report examines land use policy and practices in the Eastern Zambezi Valley that includes the valley portions of Guruve, Muzarabani and Mount Darwin Rural District Councils. The Eastern Valley is defined for this report's purposes as the area from the Chewore Safari Area to where the valley escarpment meets the Mozambique border south east of Mukumbura. The report examines past, present and future bases of land use planning. It assesses the strengths and weaknesses of present and future plans, and the degree to which these approaches fit with the complex social realities of eastern valley life at the end of the twentieth century. It is hoped that this report will be used by residents, development practitioners, and researchers to assist them in contextualizing land use changes in the eastern Zambezi Valley."
