I am heading the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy's China Program, which was established in 2003 to engage with Chinese in land and urban policy reforms. Currently I am managing three demonstration projects in China. The first project is to engage in transition of urban planning practice in a way that market forces and planning both influence urban development. The second project is to better understand the potential conflict between farmland preservation and urban development pressure and better design and develop institutional system to recognize fundamental changes undertaken in China. The last project is to engage with Chinese in property/land taxation.
