計畫名稱:Analysis and Planning For Urban Resilience to Climate Change in Coastal Cities
計畫編號:MOST 108-2621-M-309 -001 -MY2
執行期間:2019-8 ~ 2021-7
摘要:While climate change is one of the greatest environmental threats the entire world faces today, rapid urbanization is making both community and ecosystem more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Estimating urban resilience is thus one of the important processes to understand the current and potential future risk of cities providing practical policies and qualified strategies to cope with climate change effects. This study presents disaster risk analysis in southern Taiwan at the municipal and zone level using Climate Disaster Resilience Index (CDRI). The index was estimated at both zone and city-scale of three coastal cities namely Tainan, Kaohsiung, and Pingtung. The CDRI approach consists of five different dimensions (physical, social, economic, institutional, and natural), with several parameters and variables reflecting the abilities, strength, and threats of case study cities to cope with potential climate-related disasters. Findings show that besides geographical location, other factors such as education and awareness, social capital, institutional collaboration, and ecosystem services are the key challenges in formulating the resilience abilities of each region. The overall CDRI score for different cites also revealed various capabilities, shortcomings, drawbacks, and potential risks of neighbored cities in the same region. It is expected that the findings of this study shall serve as an urban planning tool recognizing the sectors within an urban context that is more or less resilient, enhance actions at local levels, and support future planning decisions.
