Land and the City

Edited by George W. McCarthy, Gregory K. Ingram, and Samuel A. Moody

Enero 2016, inglés

Lincoln Institute of Land Policy

This book from the Lincoln Institute's 2014 Land Policy Conference examines issues of land use policies and their impact on sustainable urbanization. By 1960, one-third of the world’s population lived in urban areas, and in 2007 the world’s urban population passed the halfway mark. All projected world population growth through 2050 will be urban, by which time two-thirds of the worlds people will depend on urban environments to meet their social, economic, and housing needs. The extent to which these needs will be met depends in many ways by the character of future urbanization defined in large part by land policies, ranging from planning for development or climate change, to the provision of affordable housing or other opportunities for the advancement of urban residents.

The land beneath our cities—and the policies that regulate it—shape the character of human settlements. This is critical awareness for a rapidly urbanizing planet. Above all, the editors of this volume hope that these studies will help policy makers and urban citizens alike recognize the profound ways in which land policies shape not only the cities we build but also the lives of those who reside in them.
