The OECD’s new report on the Governance of Land Use offers practitioners and scholars in the private, public, and academic sectors policy analysis and recommendations supported by statistical analysis. It covers a wide-range of themes that include but are not limited to the following:

  • The impact of fiscal policies on land use
  • The integration of fiscal policy, land use planning, and zoning instruments
  • A discussion of the incentives that local governments face to pursue certain planning policies
  • Country fact sheets on land use planning systems and land use trends in OECD countries

The authors will discuss the key messages of the report, followed by a facilitated roundtable with expert commentary on the report and audience questions.
