Lincoln Institute of Land Policy

The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy explores nonpartisan, land-based solutions to social, economic, and environmental problems, illustrating how innovative leaders can plan and pay for more inclusive, resilient communities. Our books present deep, comprehensive examinations of critical land-use issues by global experts in city and regional planning, urban economics, and conservation. Our Policy Focus Reports deliver concise, evidence-based recommendations for policy makers, local leaders, students and scholars, as well as concerned citizens. A private operating foundation whose origins date to 1946, the Lincoln Institute promotes low-carbon, climate-resilient communities and regions, sustainably managed land and water resources, efficient and equitable tax systems, fiscally healthy communities and regions, reduced spatial inequality, and functional land markets and reduced informality in the United States, Latin America, Europe, China, and Africa.
