Abstract

Over recent decades, urbanization, industrialization, and floods have produced massive changes in the Zengwun River catchment in Tainan, Taiwan. Planners must reconcile at least three conflicting interests to facilitate the nation’s rapid economic growth and to preserve the integrity of the catchment’s water balance processes. Contributing to preexisting work done in integrated catchment management (ICM) and relying on the planner’s triangle model to create a unique framework, this article proposes to encourage environment resilience in the urban, developing areas of the Zengwun catchment. The framework consists of two integrated models—water balance model and a geographic information system (GIS) to assess the conflicts among social, environmental, and economic interests. The empirical results obtained from our study of the Zengwun catchment’s urban area have shown unequal regional spatial conservation and insufficient ICM strategies, both of which result in spatial mismatches and decrease urban environment resilience.
