Recognition and enhancement of socially dominated urban land markets


Urban Landmark has developed an empirical base on how the poor gain access to urban land, and how land markets work for the poor.

The next phase aims to develop proposals that would incorporate research findings into more effective land use management and planning responses that would improve socially dominated markets through increased recognition, efficiency, effectiveness and equity, and develop ways of promoting integration across the market.
