ABSTRACT

Environmental planning based national land planning is essential as a means of conservation of national land and the prevention of destructing the natural environment from rapid national land development, especially after the unification. For such national land planning, objective natural environment assessment of North Korea’s territory should be prepared. Therefore in this study, a methodology to assess natural environmental outstanding areas of North Korea was suggested. 30 indicators were selected and were used to assess the natural environment outstanding areas using logistic regression analysis. As a result, the probability map of natural environment outstanding areas and the ROC analysis showed accuracy of 89.4% and 96.1%, respectively. For the verification of accuracy, the result of the study showed high conformity with the Environmental Conservation Value Assessment Map (ECVAM), and was able to conclude that the top 40% values from the assessment can be classified as natural environment core areas and top 60% values be classified as natural environment buffer areas.
