Although there are various policy documents that aim to protect land and the environment as a whole, there is no clear outlook for land use, which is likely to be influenced by different economic impacts.

The current strategy for the support of agricultural development, which is almost certain to continue, will lead to the exploitation of abandoned agricultural land as well as better utilisation of existing agricultural land.

There is also the possibility of moderate development of the transport network, as well as of commercial and industrial sites, to the detriment of arable land.
