[Extract] Japan, like many other nations, confronts a NIMBY problem in implementing a range of private and public projects including energy and industrial facilities, transportation projects, military installations and waste repositories. Even projects which would be regarded as socially desirable by many such as hospitals and research institutions have been delayed because of protracted conflict with local communities. Although there is a need for such projects to resolve many societal problems, it has become increasingly difficult to get local community acceptance for them. It is said that most communities understand and agree with the need for these projects as long as they are developed not in their own backyard but in someone elses, far away from them.
