###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: January 2020Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 90Author(s): Jiayu Wu, Gefei Wu, Tianli Zheng, Xiaobin Zhang, Kan ZhouAbstractValue capture has been shown to be an innovative instrument to solve the dilemma of funding shortfalls for protected areas. However, value capture mechanisms are often ineffective even though financing from the domestic budget is sufficient. This paper structures a theoretical framework to compare two value capture mechanisms (ecological compensation and ecological migration) based on implementation effects (heritage protection and welfare promotion...

To begin to put a monetary value on...
Why would new protected areas be accepted or rejected by the public?: Lessons from an ex-ante evaluation of the new Patagonia Park Network in Chile
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: December 2019Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 89Author(s): Francisco Zorondo-Rodríguez, Marion Díaz, Gabriela Simonetti-Grez, Javier A. SimonettiAbstractSocial support is one of the key factors that determines the success of protected areas. An ex-ante evaluation of the social support regarding the establishment process of protected areas could facilitate a more effective formation and hence improved management of such areas. Public backing for new parks could depend on several factors, including relationships with already established protected areas, changes in land...
Regeneration programmes: Enforcing the right to housing or fostering gentrification? The example of Bankside in London
###RSS_DATE###
Publication date: December 2019Source: Land Use Policy, Volume 89Author(s): Francesca LeccisAbstractThe aim of any regeneration programme is to transform ruined and abandoned areas into new vibrant and attractive centres. However, this supposedly marvellous project often hides the drawback of pricing former residents out of their neighbourhood, thus fostering the process commonly named “gentrification”.This paper enquires whether regeneration programmes secure decent housing to everyone or they rather encourage gentrification. In order to address this question, the case study of the...
