International Experiences on Government Land Development Companies: What Can Be Learned?

Abstract

Governments of all levels in a number of countries have experimented with what can be called a government land development corporation. In the past, experimentations with this instrument of land management intensified, but their generalization and exchange of knowledge on the subject across borders is practically lacking. It reviews ten case studies prepared specially in a unified format and discusses similarities and differences among them, along with positive lessons and potential risks. The paper outlines a conceptual design of a new corporation or some guidance on which policy, governance, and business issues should be addressed before such a corporation is established.
