Presentation at the international ISOCARP conference

Indonesia is currently one of the world’s regions with the most profound land use conflicts.

Not only is the conversion of tropical rain forests to plantations a major issue but the country is also experiencing substantial land use change from settlement and infrastructure developments, leading to loss of valuable soils, agricultural areas, and forests. From September 7th to 19th, adjunct Prof. Dr. Thomas Weith visited the country as part of the research project ReGerecht in order to engage in an exchange with fellow researchers regarding topics such as regional justice and land use conflicts.

The visit to Indonesia consisted of two parts. During the first week, first results from the research project ReGerecht were presented during a session at the international ISOCARP conference (global conference “Beyond metropolis” of the International Society of City and Regional Planners, September 7th to 13th in Jakarta and Bogor).

The second week entailed a visit to Hasanuddin University Makassar with, among other things, a public presentation at the faculty of city and regional planning about “land use and regional development in Europe”, attended by 400 students. Later on, a meeting with the Dean of the University’s faculty of Engineering lead to a fruitful exchange about land use conflicts in coastal regions as well as opportunities for active future knowledge management.
