Spatial Planning Platform (SPP)


Rapid and unplanned urbanization is an issue in a number of countries which has highlighted the increasing need for spatial/territorial planning to achieve more balanced territorial development between different regions and between urban and rural areas as well as to enable sustainable urban development in rapidly growing cities and regions.

To meet growing demands and enhance knowledge and experience sharing among countries and cities, the Spatial Planning Platform (SPP) was established jointly by the Government of Japan and UN-Habitat in 2018 to serve as a platform enabling a broad range of governments and stakeholders to share experiences, best practices and knowledge related to the spatial planning and its implementation. The platform also aims to enhance networking of stakeholders and peer to per learning process.

SPP was officially established on 1 August 2018 at the 1st SPP Meeting held in Fukuoka, Japan.
