Working with the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to analyze Land Use Policy in the United States and the Netherlands. The study assesses the primary challenges, interests, and constraints around land use decision-making processes at different levels of government.

The project constructs an analytical framework to approach the topic of land use governance in the context of urban-rural interactions and regional development policy. We hope to build a better understanding of the issues inhibiting more comprehensive approaches to land use policy and highlight strategies that encourage efficiency and productivity.

Foreword
At the beginning of our project, our client, the Organization for Economic Cooperationand Development (OECD), engaged us in a conversation around land use policy and itsimportance. The OECD expressed a desire to better understand land use and land useplanning policy in its member states. The client cited environmental, demographic, andeconomic challenges as the impetus for a potential 3-5 year study. However, they noted adeficiency of knowledge and interest to support the endeavor. We were invited to helpformulate the tools and information necessary to garner support and resources for a studyon land use policy. The OECD implored us to achieve those objectives through anopen-ended exploration and evaluation of land use. We were tasked with the following:
1.
 
Create a foundation of understanding of today
s issues in land use policy
 
Literature review: Analyze and review the driving forces behind land use
 
Research planning: Create a land use analytical framework illustrating a system of trade-offs
2.
 
Conduct field research to analyze land use policy and policy process in the US andthe Netherlands
 
Test the applicability of the analytical framework to better understand potentialchallenges
 
Compile different approaches to land use policy design, governance mechanisms,policy tools
