Synopsis : Nearly all our present and future environmental concerns return to questions of land use. "Land, Property, and the Environment" grapples with the complex interaction between market, state, and community, asking how can we manage the world's lands for food, industrial production, and settlement while minimizing the effects of an ever-heavier human fottprint? How do we develop sustainable, environmentally sound goals and robust institutions that will withstand the short-term pressures of market incentives, state policy, and local biases?
Many have argued that balancing incentives and disincentive within well-crafted property rights regimes will bring optimal environmental outcomes. Through case studies drawn from around the world and within many historical periods, "Land, Property and the Environment" tests that proposition. Collectively, these scholars question whether any particular mode of land ownership - private or public - will ensure wise management and promote enviromental health. Instead, they suggest, we must summon the political and social will necessary to withstand land markets with their drive for efficient, profitable land use.
