Drawing on a rich set of experiences and research from international settings, Professors Wakeford and Scott will address the theme of land as a critical resource for the future of rural places in the Great Plains and beyond. There are two central questions: First, what is the optimal mix of uses for rural lands and how is that vision of land use decided? Second, what is the role of government, law, and policy in influencing landowner decisions to achieve this optimized and sustainable pattern of land use? Professors Wakeford and Scott will challenge participants to consider whether existing instruments for land use planning are helping or hindering in making the most of rural places in Nebraska and beyond.
