Financing Urban Resilience through Land Value Capture
9 July 2021
Making cities more resilient to climate change and natural disasters, and in the process helping them to improve their social and economic resilience, is a major challenge of our time. A large and complicated aspect of urban resilience is the financing question: ‘How are cities expected to finance the various hard and soft measures needed to prepare for (and recover from) climate change impacts and disasters, and what role can land-based finance play in that?’
This one-day online conference, organized by IHS, Erasmus University Rotterdam, focuses on a promising financing opportunity for local governments worldwide, namely instruments of land value capture (LVC) and their role in helping cities pay for local resilience.
