Research on the Public Land Management in the United States and Its Reference for China
Abstract: The public land management in the United States has experienced these processes: extensive management to encourage land privatization—beginning to pay attention to the protection of public landsprotective development of public land. This article aims to explore the similarities and differences between China and the United States in the management of public land. From the perspective of organization, law and public interest, it provides reference for Chinas land management theory and practice. This paper found that at present, the features of public land management in USA are sound management institutions, complete laws and regulations, strict land use management system, strict implementation of paid land use, and implementation of public regulation of non-ownership. The legal system of land in the United States, the strict programming of land planning and the land property and market system are worthy of learning.
