ABSTRACT

This Study aims to demonstrate urban flood vulnerability by urbanization using panel model in case of Kyonggi Province. The results of this research verify that for the past 32 years(1971-2002) the flood damages in Kyonggi province are primarily influenced by natural factors. At the same time, it is proved that urban flood damages have been increased with urbanization. On the other hand, the embankment, which was built to control flood in urban areas, have little effect on reducing urban flood damages. These results suggest that urbanization not be controlled, but the paradigm shift in flood control policy be necessary. Considering that urbanization has a negative effect on urban flood damages, hereafter urban areas should be developed in environmentally friendly ways. In conclusion, flood control policy should be executed being compatible with nature.
