The Potential of Land Value Capture to Secure Sustainable Urban Development Supporting Air Quality Enhancement
Transport and housing are both major contributors to urban air pollution, but addressing these issues can be costly and pose significant challenges to cities. The Potential of Land Value Capture to Secure Sustainable Urban Development Supporting Air Quality Enhancement aims to help city authorities to assess the extent of local pollution and fund measures to alleviate its impacts.
Through a collaboration between researchers in China, France, the Netherlands and the UK, the research will examine the effects of air pollution of liveability and explore how various models of land value capture (LVC) can respond to these issue, with a particular focus on the the ways that approaches can be adapted to different national contexts. The findings will support decision makers in these countries to design more effective policies and finance mechanisms using LVC to alleviate pollution.

- Mixed methods research including quantitative assessment of impacts of air pollution on liveability, combined with qualitative exploration of context specific barriers and opportunities with regards to LVC implementation.
- Intersection between policy makers, researchers and communities through site visits, presentations and other activities, including creation of a multistakeholder Advisory Board to support knowledge exchange and co-learning between different groups.
