Rethinking Global Land Use in an Urban Era

Private market-based regulations feature prevalently in governance across economic sectors. This chapter examines how private regulators contribute to problem-oriented efforts in land-use governance. To make sense of the complex array of private regulators, their varying characteristics are reviewed. An assessment is made on what is known about the construction, evolution, and consequences of private regulatory initiatives on micro, meso, and macro levels, with a view of how various private regulators can affect land-use pressures. Three key problems caused by an incomplete field of private regulators are addressed: (a) the mismatch between the scale and rate of the land-use processes and the scale and rate at which private regulations are being adopted and exerting influence over land-use practices; (b) the spatial mismatch between where private regulations have gained the greatest inroads and where the land-use practice concerns reside; (c) the problem and importance of institutional fit. Land-use governance extends well beyond the policy focus of any given private regulator. Thus, for private regulation to meet these challenges, coordination and cooperation is necessary to address land impacts that result at the intersections of economic sectors and stages of global supply chains.
