Land Use

RFF research on the way land is used and managed spans natural, rural, and urban settings, including innovative policies to limit urban sprawl, the cost and effectiveness of “green” infrastructure, the costs and benefits of recreational land use, and the loss of open space and farmland on the urban fringe, among other topics.
