Land consolidation as a key factor for the sustainable development of the rural regions

Rimantas Dapkus


The research on the land consolidation impact to the rural regions’ sustainable development
is really important because the land consolidation is a mean intended not only for the expedient
formation of the use of land, but also for the solution of problems which are important both
for the local society and for the whole region. Both local inhabitants and governmental institutions
which implement the functions of public administration take part in the solution of these
problems. The subject of the research is the process of land consolidation in rural regions of
Lithuania. The hypothesis of the research is that the process of land consolidation is not implemented
effectively because of the problems in the work of institutions which are responsible for
the administration of land consolidation as well as because of the drawbacks in the juridical system.
The research has been performed by the analysis of theoretical aspects of land consolidation
and foreign countries experience comparison with Lithuanian situation, the analysis of the
process of regulation of land consolidation and institutional implementation. The results of the
research show that the hypothesis was proved and the consolidation is needed as a means of integrated
reconstruction of territory for the sustainable development of rural regions and the increase
of the region’s competitiveness.
