Until recently it has been usual in the Netherlands for local authorities to acquire land for development, to prepare it for building, and then make building lots available through sale or leasehold.

Climate deal needs equity in carbon space | Carbon Offsets Daily
The atmosphere has little space left to absorb more carbon dioxide, and developing countries are now claiming their fair share to what remains. A GLOBAL deal on climate change must put fairness and equity at the centre of its design, taking into account that much of the carbon dioxide and other dangerous gases in the atmosphere has been placed there by developed countries. The deal must ensure that developing countries be given “carbon space” and “development space” to survive as well as to achieve their development goals. Without such a design, developing countries will suffer from both a climate and a development crisis, while ... market research, surveys and trends


Minadeo, Timmons, & Morris 2009
