For strategic planning of municipal solid waste management, the goals and action plans should be predicted and adopted after proper evaluations of the previous achievements. Thus, this long-term plans for past and future 10 years were evaluated and developed by completing the procedures for current and future status analysis, the evaluation of the 2nd Seoul Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP), the development of the 3rd Seoul SWMP, expert forum, public hearing, and "Prior Environmental Review" of Korea Ministry of Environment. The greatest achievements during the 2nd Seoul SWMP (2002-2011) were good performances of waste treatment methods and their rates and greenhouse gas (GHG) saving effects. The 3rd Seoul SWMP induces three policy stances and six directions of waste management from 2012 to 2021 in Seoul. The project section in this plan is divided into six policy stages and eighteen action plants in whole. The goals of the 3rd plan are direct landfill 5.4 % and resource recovery 72 % by 2021. Optimization index analysis shows the increases of the index from 62.2 % in 2009 to 79.2 % in 2021. As well as optimization index analysis, further analysis results for public budget, GHG emissions, and job creation supports that the 3rd Seoul SWMP has been successfully planned. These findings suggest several courses of action for evaluation and development of long-term solid waste management plan in various countries. © 2014 Springer Japan. Source

This paper examines the causal connections between land use and household driving distance in the Houston-Galveston metropolitan area by introducing the directed acyclic graphs. It is found that population density and roadway design measure have direct causal relationships with total household driving distance. In terms of elasticity estimates of driving distance with respect to land-use measures, the impacts of land use on household driving distance are found to be overrated in the conventional regression analyses compared with the results based on the directed acyclic graphs. Urban development and design strategies can play a significant role in reducing household driving distance, which then helps moderate air pollution and climate change. © 2014 American Society of Civil Engineers.

The definition of gentrification has expanded significantly since its initial application in the US and UK nearly 50 years ago to cover any process by which urban space is produced for more affluent users. Some authors are now questioning the utility of such a broad concept, arguing that it is virtually indistinguishable from the process of urban regeneration. Through an exploration of land use changes in Seoul's historical central business district in the wake of the widely touted Cheonggye Stream Restoration Project, this paper argues that urban regeneration and gentrification are irreducible views of the same process that concentrate on the interests of different stakeholders. Therefore, the paper concludes that the broad definition of gentrification is more useful since it focuses public debate on the ideological and ethical question of favoring some stakeholders' interests over those of others. © 2013.

As climate change and severe air pollution become life-threatening, numerous attempts have been made to encourage the use of electric vehicles as alternative fuel vehicles. One such proposal is the introduction of electric taxis supported by the battery exchange station (BES) system. This article presents the framework on how the BESs should be located in a city considering the demand and practical constraints using Seoul, South Korea, as the case study. As a solution approach, p-median models are applied for 25 candidate locations and modeling results are presented and interpreted. © 2016 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. Source
