ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to assess the sustainability in 45 cities of all over Gyeongnam andGyeongbuk using weights and assessment system developed in leading research. The materialsof assessment used statistical data and spatial data were standardized for the systematic result.The assessment score was established using the normal distribution from 25 to 125 for removalof the very smallest and maximum value.According to the results, Tongyeong was assessed the highest by 82.5 score in environmentalsustainability index. In economical sustainability index, Pohang, Gumi, Changwon, Yangsanwere more than 79 score but Busan, Daegu, Andong were less than 70 score. Ulsan, Geoje,Yangsan were assessed higher in society-institutional sustainability index and Jinju,Munkyeong, Changnyeong were showed higher than other cities by more 79 score in quality oflife(QOL)’s sustainability index. In case of integrated sustainability index, Jinju that was thehighest sustainability in QOL was assessed by first city. However, Ulsan was assessed thelowest city among others. Therefore cities which have high sustainability will prepare a politicinvestment program for maintaining current conditions. Cities which have low sustainabilitywill grasp closely the environmental characteristics of urban and present the improvementdirection through monitoring continuously. Overall, these results can be used as tools to assessthe current cities and predict the future one. It is also necessary to establish a systematic urbanplanning for livable and sustainable city.
