Value Capture Conference
Invitation to Attend
We are pleased to invite you to the one-day conference, Value Capture: Making Sense of Policy Options, to be held in Canberra on 9 July 2018.
The Value Capture: Making Sense of Policy Options conference is being held at the Hyatt Hotel in Canberra to coincide with the Australian Conference of Economists (ACE) run by the Economic Society of Australia (ESA). The ACE will be held at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra from 10 to 13 July 2018.
The conference will explore key issues related to value capture in Australia and will hear from public policy experts from Australia and around the world who have experience in the application of value capture and from academics with their latest research of the issues.
Different value capture methodologies have been used by various governments and organisations over time. However, more recently in Australia, governments are seeking new ways which are politically tenable and economically feasible to use value capture mechanisms to fund new large infrastructure projects.
The theme of this conference taps into the current debate in Australia about infrastructure – about ideas such as the infrastructure deficit, congestion charging, taxation policy, and infrastructure funding.
Conference session themes developed by the organising committee will focus on policy development, economic assessment, and practical implementation. Topics will include:
- Attribution of value creation
- Beneficiary selection
- Mechanisms for value capture – theoretical and practical
- Taxation and transport pricing
- Economic development and town planning
- Case studies from around the world
The Value Capture Conference will attract a highly focused audience of decision-makers, infrastructure planners and academic experts with direct interest in and knowledge of debate surrounding the efficacy and application of value capture mechanisms.
