Urban Land as a Factor in Economic and Social Inclusion

The Experience of Havana

Ricardo Núñez Fernández

October 2008, English

This paper explores the topic of planning under a centrally planned socialist economy, as exemplified by the case of Havana, Cuba. The specific features of urban land management in Cuba are explored, including planning policies and methods of implementation, the degree to which land acts as a factor for social inclusion under this model, and access to government-managed land.
