Program description

Urban Land Governance for Sustainable Development Master track

The Urban Land Governance for Sustainable Development programme is a specialisation track within the MSc in Urban Management and Development, which offers students the opportunity to tackle the complex, multi-layered challenges of land, water and natural resource management in cities. These challenges are at the root of some of the most pressing concerns facing local governments: local economic development, strategic and physical planning, building social housing, providing infrastructure and basic services, and initiating poverty reduction measures.

The specialisation track adopts a governance approach to these issues and it emphasizes the nature and behaviour of urban land governance as well as public and private actors that operate in urban areas such as governments, landholders, real estate developers and land brokers. Students will analyse land governance in connection to: land rights and the rule of law; land markets and finance; and the concept of urban resilience in relation to integrated land, water and natural resource management.
