The strategic use of scarce environmental resources is clearly a matter of societal concern.

Land also varies in terms of its inherent desirable qualities, such as its location, accessibility, productivity, or cultural meaning. Planning goals, and the means deemed to be appropriate and just by which to implement political or state objectives, likewise vary.
