About the lecture:
Land policy that is rational and transparent to the population fulfills particular conditions. It is mostly based on fundamental guiding principles and follows clearly defined, universal and country-, region- or group-specific valid objectives as well. Land policy can involve different instruments and disciplines: planning law, land readjustment, valuation architectural and geospatial tools such as 3D modeling, Building Information Modeling, (urban) cadaster and property monitoring for the resurrection of the built environment. Land policy comprises the totality of the activities of public authorities in relation to land. The concept is understood as conscious action to bring about a sustainable use of land (allocation) as well as of a socially just distribution of landownership and income from land. In this presentation, some propositions for a socially just land policy in the Ukraine will be made.
