- This study aims to establish a set of indicator variables for evaluating the sustainability of forest landuse planning, which could facilitate the environmentally friendly development of forest lands in Korea. The concept of sustainable development in forest landuse was reviewed by literature and by interviews with experts in forest-related fields. Delphi technique was employed for gathering experts' opinions.
According to the results of Delphi survey, the concept of sustainable development in forest landuse was confirmed as "Use of forest lands in a lasting manner within the carrying capacity of the ecosystem involved". There are 16 factors which should be considered with care when development of forest lands is planned. They include the ratio of forest cover undeveloped, ecological stability, and landscape naturalness. Among them are the ecological factors rated the most important. The experts emphasized the importance of local characteristics in setting up the criteria for sustainable forest landuse planning.
