Verification of New Land Legislation and Collaboration for its Dissemination

Against the backdrop of a declining and aging population, the increase in unkempt vacant land and land with unknown owners has become a social issue. In recent years, the Government has undertaken a fundamental review of related systems and implemented a wide range of systems, including mandatory inheritance registration. However, in local communities that are trying to use the systems, new challenges are emerging, such as the high cost of resolving land whose ownership has once become unknown, and how to secure personnel to take on the actual work given the limited personnel and financial resources of municipalities and the aging of local communities. Therefore, this study aims to verify the operational status of the new systems so that they can function effectively in the region, and to conduct a model project for practical initiatives in cooperation with local authorities and other relevant parties.
