As part of Urban LandMark's aim of building a sound empirical base, we have commissioned investigations on many different issues. Each report reveals something about how the urban land market works, and many of the reports address whether the poor have access to urban land and how this access might be improved. We gratefully acknowledge the many authors and researchers who have taken on the challenge of improving access to land, recognising people's rights to land, suggesting ways that the better governance of land might help, and making the market more functional for all urban dwellers.
