Leveraging Land: Land-Based Finance for Local Governments. A Trainer's guide

Tools

The potential contribution of land based financing to the development of sustainable and equitable cities and properly serviced communities is often underestimated. Land based financing is a collective name given to a range of instruments by which local governments could expand their revenue base and generate funds that will help them to deliver services and infrastructure development and achieve their maintenance goals. These instruments can be used to improve public finance; equitably link public investments, private benefits and public revenues; and promote more sustainable patterns of urban development. This publication comprises a two volume training package on land-based finance, including a Reader and a Trainer’s Guide. The Trainer’s Guide provides the format for a hands-on, interactive and action-focused training workshop.
