Land Readjustment: Tools for Urban Regeneration

12 – 15 December 2016 — Global urbanization generates wealth and prosperity, but also places pressure on the supply of serviced land which is required in order to sustain processes of planned urbanization.
Because large tracts of peri-urban land are retained by few individuals, traditional families and real estate market stakeholders, Asian municipalities are compelled to engage with private land owners in order to provide housing and urban services to its growing populations.  Land readjustment has emerged as a viable tool to enable public and private partnership in land development.  Indeed, cities in countries like Japan, Korea, Turkey and India have already developed significant experience in land readjustment practices.

The course focuses on the use of land as an asset for cities to better organize urban development and create forms of self-financing urban infrastructure development.  Learning activities are designed to provide participants with practical knowledge about the planning, design, implementation and management of land readjustment projects, and enable them to develop their skills on the use of land for guiding the development of their cities in a sustainable and efficient way.  We focused on land readjustment as a tool for urban regeneration and urban transformation.

The training course aimed at equipping medium and senior municipal officers, as well as central government staff responsible for developing land-related policies in urban areas.  Urban planners and real estate development professionals are highly encouraged to participate.
