The course on land-use governance presents a broader analytical perspective on land-use policy, planning, and management. Building on the body of scholarship on natural resources governance developed over the last two decades, the course offers an overview of rule-making, planning, and conflict resolution approaches in land use. In addition, the course includes sessions on land-use modeling, scenario-building, and backcasting, as well as essential field research skills. Two core components of the course are (1) interactive theory, methodology and skills sessions, and (2) moderated independent work that includes group field research and development of individual papers.
