Abstract

Mitigation Countermeasures for Environmental Degradation from Development: Focusing on Planning Process and Institutionalization Recently, interest in an attractive environment has dramatically increased among people in Korea. In line with this, the main focus of the planning system in Korea has been on creating an environment-friendly territory by increasing open/green spaces and by preserving intrinsic functions of the ecosystem. In this vein, it is necessary to forge statutory measures for the planning system aimed at preventing negative effects on the 'ordinary' environment, which has significantly suffered from massive deterioration arising from indiscreet development. Under this backdrop, this study attempts to propose concrete tools to mitigate environmental degradation to be adopted during the process of plan establishment and environmental appraisals. Towards this end, the study tries to formulate a plan for mitigation of environmental degradation as a sub-sector of a spatial development plan. Also, it strives to come up with methods to integrate the Prior Environmental Review into the Environmental Impact Assessment in order to address environmental concerns more effectively, and introduce new statutory regulations related to the Natural Consideration Regulation and to ecosystem services. As the first step to implementing these tasks, the study suggests setting up an environmental information system in support of such practical measures. The most important thing here is a shift in our awareness of the environment. In other words, we need a new paradigm towards environmental reservation let alone efforts to reorganize the national territory to turn it into a more pleasant environment to live. This calls for a change in our attitudes towards nature, we should regard nature as a companion to human beings, keeping our eyes on its intrinsic value, rather than as a type of resources stressing its use value only. This study is expected to make substantial
