dc.description.abstract This study assessed the role of land use planning and institutions in land management inTanzania using Vianzi Village in Mvomero District, Morogoro as a case study.Specifically, the study examined the implementation of land use planning, described landmanagement practices adopted and determined the influence of land use planning andinstitutions on land management. The study had a sample of 126 respondents. The studyemployed descriptive survey research design and adopted quantitative and qualitativeapproaches. Data were collected using questionnaires survey, key informant interview anddocumentary review. The quantitative data were analysed using the IBM (SPSS statistics)software whereas qualitative data were analysed using content analysis. The researchfindings revealed that, only few farmers in Vianzi village were applying recommendedland management practices. Adoption of any land management practice was based onindividual and/or family decision rather than village plans. Adopted land managementpractices include farmyard manure application, mixed cropping, crop rotation andmulching. The reasons for not applying land management practices by themajority include lack of enough money and lack of direct benefits from the practices.Land use planning which has been in use since 2010 in Vianzi village has helped peopleto formalize their land rights as they have obtained Customary Certificate of Right ofOccupancy (CCRO). However, the land use plan has not enhanced the adoption of landmanagement practices in Vianzi Village. Finally, it was found that Vianzi village has oneorganization called Sustainable Agriculture (SAT), which has been involved in promotingthe recommended land management practices. Group approach is seen by most of therespondents as proper in enhancing land management. Finally, the Government ExtensionOfficers should visit farmers regularly and offer the much needed extension services toenhance adoption of the recommended land management practices en_US
