Abstract

Optimizing agricultural land use for sustainable development is one of the important challenges for agricultural management, especially in areas with changing socio-economic and environmental conditions. Optimization techniques have been researched for solving land use problems; however, there is not any appropriate optimization and spatial distribution method for agricultural land use. Therefore, the main objective of this study was to develop the ST-IALUP model between the open source application-LandOptimizer and ST-LUAM model to solve the multi-objective optimization and distribution for agricultural lands. The ST-IALUP model was built to target land use decisions in agricultural areas by the choice of planning scenarios. The case study for supporting agricultural land use planning in Tran De district pointed out that the ST-IALUP model not only assisted multi-objective optimization based on the factors of socio-economic, environmental and risk of LUT but also determined both land use allocation map and the new increasing area LUTs map for Tran De district to support planners in implementing solutions. The study results provided a reliable basis for supporting the decision-making process for planners in district-level agricultural land use planning in the Mekong Delta.
