中欧成功案例:城乡结合部:中国黄岩-台州地区城乡结合部的包容可持续转型

中国大多数城市研究和政策设计都致力于特大城市和城市集群。但就全国来看,城镇化进程要复杂模糊,既涉及到城市中心,也涉及之前农村地区。 “城乡结合部”项目旨在更好地理解随中国大规模城市化走廊建立的城乡集群及其相互依存关系,已不再适用传统的“城市”和“农村”二元结构。作为中国“地级市”台州的一部分,我们将黄岩-台州地区作为典型的案例进行学习和研究。该地区城镇化进程快速发展,各种看似矛盾的转型过程同时发生,建立起了多元的城乡互动联系。利用GIS技术,本项目将沿着城乡梯度构建景观和生态系统服务指标,反映城市化影响下的生态系统服务动态。在初始阶段,IOER会在中国黄岩-台州地区测试创建基于GIS的生态系统地图。目的是开发新型利益相关者导向的规划治理工具。 更多信息请登录以下网址:https://www.ioer.de/1/projekte/ura/
