Development Workshop's Director Allan Cain presented a paper on DW’s work on Community Land Sharing at the PILaR Book Project Workshop at Istanbul Technical University which ran from October 22 to 23, 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey. Most urban growth in Angola has been unregulated expansion at the periphery of cities, leading to large and still growing informal settlements around an older urban core. This paper maps out a model of “land readjustment” or “land pooling” that may be appropriate in the context of Angola’s current urban crisis. The paper presents two cases illustrating the introduction of land readjustment, one successful and the other not, with the aim of learning from and adapting the approach in future public land and settlement policies in Angola.
