LANDac Conference 2016

LARGE-SCALE LAND ACQUISITION IN THE CONTEXT OF URBANIZATION AND CLIMATE CHANGE: LINKING THE RURAL AND THE URBAN The ‘global land rush’ has been analysed extensively in recent years, focusing in particular on the rural sphere: Similar processes, however, take place in the urban and peri-urban spheres where ongoing and rapid population growth, land scarcity as well as financial and speculative imperatives have caused an unprecedented surge of investments related to land. This urban land rush, and the resulting transformation of urban and peri-urban landscapes and livelihoods, has so far received scant attention in the debates surrounding the global land rush. This conference therefore considered the global land rush in the context of rapid urbanisation and climate change.   On this page you can find materials from the LANDac Annual International Conference 2016 available for download.
