Linking Man and Nature Landscape Systems

Landscaping blue-green network
  • S.-K. HONG


Of the various concepts of blue-green networking in man-nature systems suggested with regards to the sustainable use of Korea’s natural ecosystems, this paper, in an effort to complement existing theories, analyses the concept of blue-green networking from the standpoint of landscape ecological planning (LEP). In addition, information related to the sustainable conservation and management of natural ecosystems in Gyeonggi province will be presented through an analysis of similar cases in other countries. In particular, in conjunction with the task of formulating measures that can be used to complement and improve the ecological network in the Gyeonggi area, ecological network systems that have been implemented in Europe and Japan were introduced.
