ABSTRACT

This study intends to analyze the effects of greenbelt release on vegetation conditions in the case of the three medium-sized cities in Korea. For this purpose, two types of the difference-in-difference models are performed to estimate the determinants of the NDVI (normalized difference vegetation index) by utilizing the panel data of the study areas which includes both attribute data such as population and land price, and spatial data such as distance to the city center. The findings of this study indicate that the release of the greenbelt restriction made the vegetation condition worse off in all three medium-sized cities. This reflects that the greenbelt functions as a green area reservoir, and proves that the greenbelt restriction is an effective tool to control land development.
