Insights from Athens, Greece <p>Transport equity is an essential characteristic of a just city and a concept related to social inclusion. This study examined how different street classification scenarios will affect active transportation equity. Four different scenarios with different planning rationales were developed that reformulate the street classification in a municipality within a metropolitan area, i.e., Kallithea in Athens, Greece. These scenarios give rise to new street categories that reallocate street space favoring active transport users. The evaluation of active transportation equity was carried out by utilizing spatial analysis and welfare economics through the lens of egalitarian and sufficientarian approaches. Based on the results, scenarios that propose new urban centers as well as a readable street classification with traffic calming zones determined by ring roads seem to be more efficient in accommodating vulnerable users in an equitable way. Hence, new planning schemes should rely on active modes, leaving automobiles behind. In general, measuring the impact of street classification scenarios through the lens of equity is critical for improving the quality of life in cities. Additionally, it is noteworthy knowledge for policy makers, planners, and local administrators. Finally, this research may inspire new studies, enriching the scientific debate.</p> Stefanos Tsigdinos Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Regional and City Planning Mon, 25 Mar 2024 00:00:00 +0700 Unravelling the Economic Impacts <p class="Abstrak">This study aimed to reveal the macroeconomic effects of the earthquakes that occurred in Türkiye in February 2023 on the country as a whole, the affected region (covering 11 provinces), and other provinces. Using secondary data obtained from data sets of various institutions, this research firstly attempted to estimate the negative effects of the February Earthquakes on the country’s GDP. The study presents a base scenario using the economic growth forecasts of international organizations such as the IMF and the World Bank for 2023 and 2024 as well as three possible loss scenarios for Türkiye, taking into account the effects of earthquakes of similar magnitude on the GDP in Türkiye and other countries. Furthermore, this study tried to estimate the losses caused by earthquakes in terms of employment, GDP, agriculture, industry, services, and foreign trade at the regional and provincial levels. To do this, we created the Base Scenario, which assumes no earthquake, and Scenario 1, which shows the impact of the earthquake. The findings indicate that, in the worst-case scenario, the country will contract by approximately 2.75%, which means a loss of $8.8 billion. Moreover, the study results point out an average monthly loss of 242 thousand jobs, a loss of $5 billion in GDP, an export loss of $3.5 billion, and an import loss of $4.7 billion in the 11 earthquake-affected provinces. The research underlines the need for comprehensive measures to mitigate the economic consequences caused by earthquakes. This includes disaster prevention plans, effective management strategies and initiatives aimed at strengthening regional economic resilience. Ultimately, the article provides valuable information for policymakers to facilitate informed decisions and the implementation of measures to increase preparedness, risk mitigation, and sustainable recovery in earthquake-prone areas.</p> Ismail Demirdag, Anang Widhi Nirwansyah Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Regional and City Planning Tue, 26 Mar 2024 00:00:00 +0700 Exploring Public Sentiments Using Big Data on Superhub Spatial Development of Nusantara, the New Capital City of Indonesia <p>Superhub development is crucial for enhancing the economic prowess and sustainability of a region, focusing on bolstering its global competitiveness and amplifying its impact on national and regional growth. In the case of Nusantara, Indonesia’s new capital city, understanding public sentiment towards its development plan is essential. This study employed sentiment analysis, combining a comprehensive dataset of 433,637 tweets from 2020 with public documents and machine-learning tools to accurately gauge public opinion. Six key components of regional development emerged from the analysis, reflecting public discourse on IKN’s planning and execution. Geographically, sentiment across the 33 provinces was evenly distributed, with 63% positive, 24% negative, and 13% neutral sentiments observed in the tweets. However, sentiment fluctuated throughout the year, with a surge in negative sentiment early in 2020 due to concerns over financing risks and economic challenges. Nonetheless, negativity waned as the year progressed, with positive tweets steadily increasing from April to December. These findings offer valuable insights for guiding the development of Nusantara, aiding policymakers in addressing public concerns, and ensuring a more informed and inclusive approach. Such sentiment analysis proves instrumental in shaping the strategic trajectory of the new capital city, fostering sustainable growth and public support.</p> Ibnu Syabri, Ridwan Sutriadi, Nugraha Ramadhany Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Regional and City Planning Wed, 27 Mar 2024 00:00:00 +0700 Writing about Smart Cities in Indonesia: A Bibliometric Analysis <p style="font-weight: 400;"><em>This study analyzed the development, current patterns, and main focuses in the field of smart cities in Indonesia by conducting a bibliometric analysis of 133 academic articles. The study used the Scopus database to collect data and the Bibliometrix R programme to conduct a detailed bibliometric analysis. The findings revealed a yearly rise in publications, suggesting a growing scholarly focus on smart cities. The inquiry explored the relationships between authors, their affiliations, and countries, identifying the most prominent journals and influential publications in this field. Keyword analysis revealed the main topics and subjects, which greatly aided in the strategic planning and execution of smart city projects by identifying gaps, patterns, and potential areas for further investigation. This bibliometric analysis provides detailed insight into the study on smart cities in Indonesia, showing a transition from an initial emphasis on technology and sustainability to a wider range of sustainable development and sociological aspects. The findings emphasize the need for interdisciplinary approaches and increased regional and international partnerships to tackle complex urban challenges. This study promotes a holistic view of the smart city that combines technological advancement with community involvement and urban quality of life.</em></p> Anang Dwi Santoso, Januar Eko Aryansah, Annada Nasyaya Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Regional and City Planning Mon, 08 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0700 Navigating the Maze of Urban Voids: A Hybrid MCDM Approach for Site Selection for Urban Poor in PCMC, India <p>The rapid pace of migration has incurred a higher demand and a lower supply ratio of economically weaker section (EWS) housing, prompting the emergence of illegal squatters across several Indian cities, especially on public reservation lands, turning them into urban voids. Numerous government initiatives, at the central, state, and urban local body levels, have been attempted to provide housing to the urban poor living in slums, predominantly through in-situ redevelopment. However, the efforts lagged for several reasons. One of the major reasons is the lack of a methodical process for the logical selection of available slum sites for rehabilitation or redevelopment. This creates a challenging situation for the decision makers to prioritize these sites, as currently it is based on the notification date of slums and is majorly driven by political will. Hence, this research attempted to formulate a prioritization model for the selection of slum sites in the PCMC area by evaluating them with parameters derived from expert opinion. The Hybrid Multiple Attribute Decision Making (MADM) model, using weights derived from Shannon’s entropy, and ranking performed using the TOPSIS method were considered for prioritization of the slum sites. This unbiased scientific process will guide the decision makers in the appropriate allocation of available resources to uplift the urban poor living in slums, which is crucial for the sustainable urban development of India.</p> Harshad Raisoni, Tanaya Verma, Arati Petkar Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Regional and City Planning Tue, 16 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0700
