There is increasing evidence that the use and management of land resources are better addressed through a participatory and integrated approach. The first Guideline for Participatory Village Land Use Planning, Administration and Management in Tanzania was prepared in 1998 by the National Land Use Planning Commission (NLUPC) and came into operation even before the enactment of the Land Act Cap 113 (1999) and the Village Land Act Cap 114 (1999) among many Laws.

In 1999 onwards, there was an increased formulation and emanation of new policies, legislation and regulations from various Ministries and Sectors with concerns for rural land use planning, administration and management including Land Act Cap 113 (1999), the Village Land Act Cap 114 (1999), National environment Act No. 20 of 2004, etc. In the process of applying new laws, different experiences accrued from several actors at various levels and opportunities which posed challenges on direct application of the 1st Edition of (PLUM) Guidelines (1998) thus, there was a need of revising it to address the short falls in the Second Edition of 2013 which insisted more participatory approach, than top down.
