This guide has been prepared to assist land tenure and land administration specialists who are involved with the reconstruction of systems of land tenure and land administration in countries that are emerging from violent conflict. The guide identifies key aspects that should be analysed during initial assessments, and gives examples of short-term actions that may be imple

This report: (1) analyzes the number, trends, and characteristics of BLM and Forest Service land exchanges; and (2) determines the effectiveness of agency actions to address previous

Land-based financing of urban infrastructure is growing in importance in the developing world. Why is it so difficult to finance urban infrastructure investment, when land values typically increase by more than the cost of investment?'Unlocking Land Values to Finance Urban Infrastructure' examines the theory underlying different instruments of land-based finance, such as betterment levies, developer exactions, impact fees, and the exchange of publicly owned land assets for infrastructure. It provides a wealth of case-study illustrations of how different land-based financing tools have been imp
