Real Estate & Planning staff in Argentina presenting on Sustainable Development


Members of the School of Real Estate & Planning were in Buenos Aires recently where they co-organised a one-day workshop with the Ministry of Housing and Habitat of Argentina.

During the event Dr Claudia Murray gave a presentation on the challenges Latin America and Argentina are facing in order to successfully reach the targets for the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development. Associate Professor Joe Doak outlined how win-win-win outcomes to develop sustainable communities can be negotiated through a transparent process of network-building and partnership working. He explained both the strengths of this process, examples of successful outcomes and pitfalls to be avoided. Finally, Dr Gianluca Marcato talked about real estate investment trusts (REIT) legislation, providing an overview of worldwide REIT regimes highlighting some of the key factors to consider in establishing a new REIT structure in Argentina.

The workshop was facilitated by the current Director of National Planning, Arch. Pablo Guiraldes and RE investor and Professor Damian Tabakman. Participants to the event included government representatives as well as property developers, investors and financial organisations.
