The Governance of Land Use Report Launch

On May 2, 2017, the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy hosted the launch of a new policy report of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), titled “The Governance of Land Use in OECD Countries: Policy Analysis and Recommendations.” The report 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: 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; and country fact sheets on land use planning systems and land use trends in OECD countries. At the report launch, held at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, the authors discussed the key messages of the report, which was followed by a facilitated roundtable with expert commentary on the report and audience questions.
