Abstract

This chapter is the first of two that demonstrate the complex intersections of government
and governance. Land-use planning and development controls are the
twin foci for the inquiry by Denbeigh Armstrong and Elaine Stratford, who scrutinize
their unfolding in the two island jurisdictions of Tasmania (Australia's only island
state, equivalent to a Canadian province) and Prince Edward Island. They
argue that an observance of internationally agreed-upon sustainability principles
is a prerequisite for sustainable economic development; and this is especially crucial for
small islands with finite natural assets like land, waterfront, or forest. For
any community or region striving to advance economic development in a sustainable
way, land-use planning is an essential and often overlooked underpinning of
most other development efforts.
