ABSTRACT

Since the tourism complex development projects is promoted for areas with good natural environment and excellent landscapes, it has s significant environmental impact on the surrounding area. Therefore, this study investigated the current status and various environmental influences of tourist complex based on environmental impact assessment reports from 2012 to 2021. Based on the results of the current status analysis of the development projects, EA-INDEX forthe tourism complex development projects was developed and applied to comprehensively and quantitatively analyze various environmental impacts. Through this, we investigated eco-friendliness of the development projects by year in the natural environment conservation sector, resource conservation sector, and living environment protection sector. As a result we found that the tourism complex development projects were carried out in a way that increases eco-friendliness over the past ten years, especially in in the natural environment conservation sector. On the other hand, in the case of resource conservation, it has been confirmed that eco-friendliness is decreasing, so it is necessary to make efforts to improve it when establishing new development plans in the future. It is expected that the result of this study will be useful for identifying the development trend and environmental impact of development projects. If an analysis is made that synthesizes information such as policy events and social issues related to development projects in the future, it is also expected that a broader explanation will be possible to identify trends in development projects using EA-INDEX.
