School of City and Regional Planning Associate Professor Michael Elliott and Visiting Professor Nestor Garza were both honored with Lincoln Institute of Land Policy Case Study Awards. There were 15 other winners nationally in response to more than 100 entries.
Elliott’s case, “Women's Action towards Climate Resilience for Urban Poor in South Asia,” focuses on the climate resilience capacity of women from slum communities in seven cities of South Asia to take the lead in action against climate risks.
“Lincoln Institute's efforts to build a digital case library for sharing land policy knowledge across the globe is to be commended,” said Elliott. “Cases provide rich descriptions and allow for nuanced understanding of the context, policies and actions utilized to enhance community wellbeing.”
"In the past I have had a relatively strong association with the Latin American division of The Lincoln Institute. Now that I am at the USA, this activity goes in the line of also establishing an association with the Headquarters,” said Garza.
Garza’s case study was on, “Implementation and Effects of Land Value Capture in Bogotá, Colombia.”
Winning projects received funding of $1,000 and will become part of the Lincoln Institute’s first digital case library. To find out more about the awards from the ACSP announcement, click here. For more information on the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, click here.
