About the Journal

1. Environmentally Based Regional Planning

Environmentally Friendly Development is an effort to preserve the environment by holding a development based on natural resources, and adapting to the carrying capacity of the environment in order to preserve nature and help increase environmental resilience. Planning and development while maintaining resilience aim to maintain the sustainability of the natural environment, the artificial environment, and the social environment for future generations so that planning can continue without stopping at a period of development. In addition, this topic contains the impact of development on environmental quality as well as an important topic that cannot be ignored in the scope of environmental-based regional planning such as urban hits, environmental pollution, land degradation, global warming, and so on.

2. Urban Infrastructure and Transport Planning

The theme of Urban Transportation and Infrastructure Planning is a very interesting theme, considering that these themes are the main things that are always developing, innovating, and interesting to research. Changes in the pattern of life that occur in the midst of people's lives as a result of economic growth and other logical consequences of the environment are the dominant factors in the growth of transportation. Therefore, efforts to organize transportation must be carried out based on a systemic approach to produce a comprehensive and effective management concept.

In the era of the industrial revolution 4.0 towards 5.0, transportation and infrastructure planning is directed to always be future-oriented which is currently known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Action Plan, one of which is; Sustainable Cities and Communities. Where the target to be achieved by 2030 is to provide access to safe, affordable, accessible, and sustainable transport systems for all, improve road safety, by increasing public transport, with special attention to the needs of those in vulnerable situations, women, children, people with disabilities and the elderly. Achieving these targets requires prior assessment through in-depth research or research from various perspectives.

3. Development of a Digital-Based City (Smart City)
