This year starts well, at least in terms of events related to the field of territorial management. After the recent event in El Salvador of CONFEDELCA, whose emphasis was on territorial ordering as a factor for local development, this one comes to us:
Course of Legal Foundations for Territorial Planning
It is aimed at discussing the legal dimension of urban planning and territorial ordering in general; among others these are some of the topics that will be treated:
- Legal instruments vrs. planning measures in the regularization of land markets
- Equitable distribution of tax burdens and other damage to land
- Legal dimension of urban planning and territorial order in Latin America
- Legal bases of surplus value
In Guatemala City, Guatemala.
The course will be developed with the support of the Association for Soil and Land Management (AGISTER), the Faculty of Architecture of the University of San Carlos of Guatemala and the Democratic Municipalities Program.
Coyontura of the theme:
The usefulness of this course is very valuable, after the recent laws of territorial organization and efforts for the regularization of land tenure promoted by the World Bank and other organizations in many Latin American countries. Especially if it is given the focus of application of territorial policies oriented to the revaluation of the land, one of the great resources that these people have.
10 al 12 March 2008
To register you must complete an application (before the 12 February 2008) in page of the Lincoln Institute, so if you're near, we'll see you there because of the proximity and I've signed up. While I take the opportunity to visit some friends I left in that country.
... although the CONFEDELCA event seemed to me ... with little noise, and of course many more few nuts.
