What is SPP
The Spatial Planning Platform (SPP) was established by the Government of Japan and UN-Habitat's Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific in 2018 as a network of stakeholders aiming to achieve the formulation and implementation of more effective national and regional spatial planning. The platform acts as a framework for central governments, international organisations, local governments, NGOs, private sector, experts, and other various institutions to come together and exchange.
The 5th Spatial Planning Platform conference in Kathmandu, Nepal, in February 2023 with 21 speakers, including government officials and experts from 14 countries explored the challenges of appropriate governance and decentralisation frameworks and of climate and other threats, with experiences from their countries presented. The Conference contributed to the sharing of expreiences and knowledge of a sustainable, resilient, and inclusive society.
