Land Tenure and the Social Economy
MetadataShow full item record
This is a proposal and plan for a BALTA research project. Shared equity land ownership is important in the social economy. Examples of it can be found in a range of sectors including agriculture, housing (in rural and urban municipalities), eco-conservancy, commons management, and in areas of community forestry. This research project is examining the range and scale of shared equity land tenure models being used across various sub-sectors of the social economy, including land trusts and land banking. This review will also incorporate the legal landscape of land tenure models with respect to taxation, zoning, jurisdiction, etc. in order to develop a model of community-based land acquisition and management.
