The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy is now making its quarterly magazine Land Lines available in Spanish, beginning with the July 2011 issue. The Spanish translation of the magazine, which includes articles on research being conducted by fellows and others associated with the Lincoln Institute, profiles of fellows and faculty, a message from Lincoln Institute President Gregory K. Ingram, and publications announcements and other news, can be downloaded free here.
Spanish-speaking readers will be interested in the topics concerning the environment, urban growth, and land and tax policy internationally, said Martim O. Smolka, director of the Program on Latin America and the Caribbean at the Lincoln Institute.
The translation of Land Lines will soon be followed by the posting of both Spanish and Portuguese versions of the recent Policy Focus Report, Regularization of Informal Settlements in Latin America. The Latin America program section of the Lincoln Institute Web site includes a Spanish language section and Resources and Tools subcenters, on such topics as the property tax, in Spanish and Portuguese. And the Lincoln Institute’s Facebook page, which includes several hundred fans from Latin America, also has a special section devoted to the work of the Program on Latin America and the Caribbean.
“This initiative will help extend the dialogue on many important topics not only in Latin America, where the Lincoln Institute’s network is extensive and growing, but in the U.S. and all around the world,” Smolka said.
