Webinar: Land Value Capture and Equitable Development

Maio 4, 2021 | 9:00 a.m.

Offered in inglês

Join the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy for an engaging conversation with urban experts from around the world to discuss whether and how land value capture, also called land value return, can be implemented effectively and in service to urban equity objectives, especially in developing cities. The webinar will feature a panel of experts discussing lessons learned from their own research and practice on land value capture, and will include a presentation of findings from the recently released working paper Urban Land Value Capture in São Paulo, Addis Ababa, and Hyderabad: Differing Interpretations, Equity Impacts, and Enabling Conditions. The paper analyzes the fiscal and equity impacts of urban land value capture instruments based on three case studies from the global south.
