Capacity building and improving environment for municipal practice in land management and taxation

The NALAS Task force on Urban Planning organised the workshop “Capacity building and improving environment for municipal practice in land management and taxation” in Belgrade, 5th – 6th October 2015. It contributed to support municipal urban planning and land management focusing on the relation between land development and taxation of land and real estate.
The core hypothesis of the workshop was that taxation on land property can be used as a land management tool: Coordinating the taxation of land property with land management could contribute to develop the cities and regions more efficient and more sustainable. In the workshop the different forms of land taxation were discussed under the light of the different steps of urban development
