Gauging Urban LandMark's impact over the last five years
Urban LandMark in 2010 commissioned an organisational impact assessment to help us better understand the impact and influence that our initiatives have had to date. The narratives that follow tell the stories of impact which resulted from our long-term investment in our incremental tenure approach and in the Land Use Management Bill process.
 
Urban LandMark alert: Our programme cycle is coming to an end - whereto from here?
Urban LandMark's current funding cycle ended in March 2011. We are now embarking on a programme consolidation period, through to December 2011, during which we will investigate the potential to deepen our activities in selected key high-impact initiatives, as well as expand into new areas. We are excited about the potential to integrate climate change imperatives into our existing agenda.
 
What else are we working on?
We provide brief updates on our involvement in a number of projects and initiatives, which include the development of a new Urban Land Governance manual, investigations into the delays in issuing title deeds to beneficiaries of housing projects funded by the capital subsidy, and more.
 
New publication from Lincoln Institute of Land Policy: Climate Change and Land Policies
The 2010 Land Policy Conference provided a forum for discussion on topics including how energy and climate change policies affect land resource allocation and land use planning; and the ability of governments at all levels to deal with climate change and land management.
