Outline of the Division

Welcome to the homepage of Urban Planning Division of NILIM, MLIT! Here we will introduce the outline of our division.


1. Development of Planning Methodology
We aim to provide a rationale for the process (i.e. analysis, plan-making, and realization procedure) and review methods at each stage of Japanese land-use-based urban planning, by affording evaluation methods that will contribute to procedures and considerations, and information of best practices and case studies.
2. Solutions for Common Urban Planning Administrative Issues
We aim to develop planning and evaluation methods and technologies that will contribute to solve urban planning adminstrative issues (of the national government or the issues common to local governments) under the circumstances. We also aim to accumulate and disperse obtained findings by application of such methods and technologies.
