Abstract

This paper takes off from the point that geoparks and land are intertwined, and that land use planning can serve as a means to enable effective conservation and development of geoparks. The focus lies on how existing land use related statutes could be put to use to capture the components and elements that make up a geopark, particularly in the case of Langkawi Geopark. Given that there are more than 120 statutes that can be linked to the various aspects and components that make up a geopark, this article has taken the liberty to only focus on a few statutes rather than all that has been identified. This is intentional so as to enable detailed discussion regarding where components that make up a geopark can converge in land use planning aspects, also about processes and procedures that are embodied in existing statutes.
