About this course: Land readjustment generally refers to a process in which a group of neighboring land owners and occupants combine their land parcels together for unified planning, servicing and redevelopment. This tool has been used in many developed and developing countries to facilitate urban expansion through rural-to-urban land conversion and to assemble underutilized land in inner cities for densification and redevelopment. It has also been used to facilitate post-disaster and post-conflict reconstruction.
This course aims to assist policy makers and practitioners to understand the general concepts and empirical applications of land readjustment through illustration of real-world examples. Our goal is to assist participants, after taking this course, to perform the following tasks:
· Identify what problems and under what circumstances they can apply LR;
· Understand how LR works in both theory and practice;
· Set realistic goals for LR projects from the perspectives of different stakeholders;
· Design and execute the implementation process; and,
· Anticipate possible unintended outcomes and conduct evaluation of LR projects.
