Geoff’s lecturing at Darmstadt Technical University

Geoff was delighted to be invited back to Darmstadt Technical University again this year for four days of lectures and a game as part of the Urbano Mundus programme. The 23 students came from a wide range of countries and reported that they all had great fun. Geoff wishes them all  the best on the course and in their careers.

                                        Geoff’s class was also carried on outside in Darmstadt’s good weather

 

        During the lectures, four different groups prepared their own project for a pro-poor settlement and                                                                               presented with discussion parts.

                      After the discussions, Geoff summarised his own project and gave his closing speech.

Geoff in UN-Habitat Global Urban Lecture series

The United Nations has just released Geoff’s lecture on land tenure and property rights as part of the UN-Habitat Global Urban Lecture series. You can see it on their website.

The lecture distills 30 years of international experience on land tenure issues to provide a short, non-technical review of concepts, issues, methods and policy examples.

Geoff hopes the lecture will be useful for students, practitioners and policy makers and would be happy to receive feedback.
