Yokohama : reinventing the future of a city (Inglês)

The cities of Japan are an exceptional source of learning. They have recovered from disaster, dealt with population influx, industrialized at a rapid pace, responded to environmental challenge, reached the technological frontier, undergone a housing bubble and its collapse, and reconstruction followed by the natural disasters. Today, they face threats of demographic and technological change that are far from unique to the developed world. The Yokohama Case highlights the importance of mayor’s wedge, coordinating mechanism for large-scaled urban infrastructure projects at the time of population booming and visionary planning to transform the physical, economic and social heart of the city from port and industry to culture and the citizen. This research was prepared by the Tokyo Development Learning Center (TDLC) under the auspices of the Social, Urban, Rural, and Resilience Global of the World Bank Group. Its objective is to create a knowledge base on what makes cities competitive, understand job creation at the city level, and capture the unique development experience of Japan for broad dissemination to development practitioners, government officials, academia and the private sector.
