Lincoln Institute Celebrates 75 years

Announcing a 75th Anniversary Lincoln Institute Dialogue, “Planning and Financing Sustainable and Equitable Cities: Global Views on Land Value Capture”
Land value capture is a policy approach that enables communities to recover and reinvest land value increases that result from public investment and other government actions. It’s rooted in the notion that public action should generate public benefit. Join Lincoln Institute Director of International Initiatives Enrique Silva and our global partners for an exploration of how governments around the world are using land value capture to advance positive fiscal, social, and environmental outcomes.
This 75th Anniversary Lincoln Institute Dialogue will introduce the Global Compendium on Land Value Capture, a collaborative effort between the Lincoln Institute and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The first-ever overview of land value capture across the globe, the compendium details policy frameworks in 60 countries. Speakers from the OECD and the German Development Agency, GIZ, will highlight how and why land value capture is relevant for cities today, why their agencies are working to promote its use, and how global partnerships may help scale up the use and improve the effectiveness of an important land-based financing tool.
