Gaming and Decision-Making: Urbanized Village Redevelopment in Guangzhou

  • Zhuang Zhiqiang 
Part of the Advances in Asian Human-Environmental Research book series (AAHER)


This chapter draws on the redevelopment of Sanyuanli Village and Xiaoping Village in Baiyun District of Guangzhou to examine the history of urbanized village redevelopment, to evaluate related policies, and to analyze the gaming behaviors of stakeholders in different phases as well as the effects imposed by government decision-making. The interest balance between governments, urbanized villages, and developers will dictate whether urbanized village redevelopment is feasible or not. Therefore, only when municipal governments aim for benefit sharing and a win-win situation for all parties during decision-making processes will the urbanized village redevelopment successfully be accomplished.
