Land Pooling/Readjustment: An Alternative to Compulsory Land Acquisition (Self-Paced)

Land pooling or land readjustment is gaining more and more acceptance as an alternative to land acquisition in the backdrop of massive infrastructure investments, especially in urban areas. It is often seen as a more inclusive and efficient approach compared to compulsory land acquisition, and a win-win situation in which the government can upgrade the neighborhood without having to rely on eminent domain, and the landowners can enjoy better living conditions and an increase in the value of their real asset.

This course is designed to assist policymakers and practitioners to understand the general concepts and empirical applications of Land pooling and land readjustment (LP/LR). Our goal is to assist participants, after taking this course, to perform the following tasks: 1. Identify what problems and under what circumstances they can apply LP/LR; 2. Understand how LP/LR works in both theory and practice; 3. Set realistic goals for LP/LR projects from the perspectives of different stakeholders; 4. Design and execute the implementation processes such as assessing and mitigating risks and developing grievance redress mechanisms; and 5. Anticipate possible unintended outcomes and evaluate LP/LR projects.

The course is organized into the following modules: Module 0: Executive Summary Module 1: Overview - Using Land Readjustment to Cope with Rapid Urbanization Module 2: Where has land readjustment been adopted or experimented with? Module 3: What Policy Goals Can Land Readjustment Achieve, and Under What Conditions? Module 4: How Should Land Readjustment Projects Be Designed and Implemented? Module 5: What Have We Learned?

Throughout the course, we will use real-world examples to illustrate important points related to the above-mentioned tasks. We will also discuss in detail the experiences of adopting LR in several countries to show how this land tool can facilitate urbanization and mediate related problems in developing country contexts.
