The China Program explores issues and challenges relating to land and taxation policy in China with a focus on rapid urban development, fundamental land policy and tax reform. The work is concentrated in the following areas:

  • Property Taxation and Local Public Finance
  • Land Policy
  • Housing Policy
  • Urban Development and Planning
  • Sustainable Development and Environmental Policy

In December 2007, the Lincoln Institute and Peking University established the PKU-Lincoln Institute Center for Urban Development and Land Policy on the campus of Peking University. The Center seeks to develop institutional capacity in China to address the many challenges of rapid growth, with the goal of strengthening expertise in land policy and planning for urban development, through  education and training, academic research, and policy advisory and pilot programs.
