This chapter discusses the relationship between land-use structure optimization and urban development. During periods of rapid economic transformation, the optimization of land-use structures can help to achieve sustainable development, as it enhances land-use efficiency, maintains land production, and strikes a balance for the ecosystem. The chapter also presents the Pearl River Delta (PRD) as a case study to analyse current land-use structures and efficiency, as well as changes in the spatial distribution of different land uses since the 1990s. It identifies the key problems in the PRD's current land-use patterns and concludes with policy recommendations for optimizing land-use structures.

Keywords:   land-use structure optimization, urban development, land-use structures, land-use efficiency, land production, Pearl River Delta, PRD
