Abstract

This paper presents the empirical analysis of the sustainable development of Jeju Province, South Korea in terms of environmental impact(EI), ecological footprint(EF), and the relative importance of the factors determining sustainable development. A ten-year time-series set of statistical data(1993 to 2002)was used for this analysis. Jeju is sustainable in terms of EI, but unsustainable in terms of EF. The different result is drawn from different variables included in the two analytical techniques used. The leading positive factors determining sustainable development are those related to the quality of life as it relates to amenity, cultural affluence, and convenience. Meanwhile, the leading negative factors were population, acid rain, and pollution of the natural environment. These findings may be influenced by the fact tourism is the dominant industry of Jeju. For achieving sustainable development efficiently in Jeju, an integrated environmental policy is required, plus education programs that will inform the island's population of environmental issues and serve to increase awareness and environmentally friendly practices.
