Regional & Urban Planning
The Regional and Urban Panning (RUP) cluster is dedicated to conducting research on urban and regional policies. It focuses on various aspects, such as post-oil cities, decentralization, green infrastructure, nature-based solutions, a thriving economy, and smart cities in Indonesia. Within this cluster, specific research topics include Innovative Urban Governance, Sustainable Transportation, and Smart Cities. Notably, RUP oversees a significant, long-term research effort called “Citypedia,” which aims to gather and depict recent developments and phenomena in urban areas.
Our roadmap clearly outlines our vision to enhance regional and urban policies. We aim to explore and delve deeper into regional and urban planning matters to foster more sustainable development. At present, the RUP Cluster is actively engaged in two flagship projects, namely The USF Overlook Cities, and the Study on Digital Governance and Climate Adaptation. Additionally, ongoing research efforts within the cluster include a comprehensive study on Nature-based Solutions in metropolitan cities of the Global South and an investigation into public spaces and urban built environments following the COVID-19 pandemic.
