  2. 2. Stakeholder Participation in Property Development

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Engineering

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Stakeholder; Participation; property development; Sustainable development;

    Abstract : The traditional representation of urban property as a technical exercise of market analysis, valuation and investment appraisal fails to link urban property development to the general notions of sustainable development and thus the connection to environmental, economic and social aspects of sustainable urban development.
