About the Authors Principal Authors Hiroaki Suzuki is the former lead urban specialist of the Urban and Resilience Management Unit of the Urban and Disaster Risk Management Department at the World Bank. Currently, he is a lecturer at the Graduate School of Engineering, University of Tokyo; the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS); and the Graduate School of Politics, Hosei University. He has more than 30 years of operational experiences within the infrastructure and public sectors and at the World Bank and the Overseas Economic Cooperation Fund, Japan (now the Japan International Cooperation Agency [JICA]). He specializes in the areas of sustainable urban development, transport and land use integration, municipal finance, and innovative urban infrastructure financing. He is the lead author of Eco2 Cities: Ecological Cities as Economic Cities (2010); its implementation guide, Eco2 Cities Guide: Ecological Cities as Economic Cities (2012); and Transforming Cities with Transit: Transit and Land-Use Integration for Sustainable Urban Development (2013), all published by the World Bank.
He earned a master of science degree in management from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Sloan School of Management.
Jin Murakami is an assistant professor in the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering at City University of Hong Kong. He specializes in the areas of transportation and economic development, development strategy and spatial planning in globalization, and public finance and land policy. His research focuses principally on spatial and financial matters to increase city-regions’ global competitiveness and local livability. He earned his PhD in city and regional planning from the University of California, Berkeley. He is a lead author, Working Group III, of chapter 12, “Human

Air right sale. One of the development-based LVC instruments. Governments sell development rights extended beyond the limits specified in land use regulations (e.g., FAR) or created by regulatory changes to raise funds to finance public infrastructure and services.
Bus rapid transit (BRT). High-quality bus-based services that mimic many of the features of high-capacity metrorail systems but at a fraction of the cost. Buses most closely resemble metrorail services when they operate on specially designated lanes or have physically separated lanes for their exclusive use. Grade separation of busways at critical intersections and junctures also expedites flows. BRT systems often include bus stations instead of stops to provide weather protection and allow passengers to pay before boarding.
Central business district (CBD). Areas where cities’ major businesses (financial institutions, stores, major convention and sport facilities, hotels, etc.) are concentrated. CBDs produce agglomeration economies.
Eminent domain. Regulatory power granted to governments or public agencies, which allows them to take private property for public projects or interests, subject to appropriate compensation.
Floor area ratio (FAR). Ratio of a building’s total floor area to the size of the land on which it is built. The higher the FAR, the higher the density. Also referred to as floor space ratio (FSR) or floor space index (FSI).
Greenfield development. New development that takes place on lands that were not previously developed as urban land including agricultural, rural, and unused land.
xiii xiv Glossary
Redevelopment/regeneration. Type of development that seeks to reinvest in already developed areas, typically targeting parcels that are underutilized (e.g., vacant or abandoned properties); often considered part of an economic development scheme.
Sprawl. Pattern of development characterized by uniform low density, lack of a distinctive core, poor accessibility, dependence on automobiles, and uncontrolled and noncontiguous land expansion.
State leasehold system. Land holding system under which lands are owned by the States and the lands are leased by the States to individuals or firms for a fixed duration, with lease fees and other conditions. The rights enjoyed by lessees can vary with specific lease conditions, but terms frequently allow for the right to assign the lease to another or allocate the residual value of the lease. Development and use rights are likely to be restricted by the States.
Transfer of development rights (TDR). Ability to effectively buy and sell “air rights” (i.e., rights to fully develop the maximum allotted vertical envelope— or “air space”—of properties) within the limit of their FAR allotment or the unused development rights that remain when a particular building does not use up its FAR allotment; typically applies only to certain parcels, and the rights often can only be transferred to specific “receiving” parcels.
