|Other Titles:||Perception and Adjustment of Environmental Pollution: A Case Study of Nankang and Neihu, Taipei|
Department of Geography, NTNU
|Abstract:||The focus of this paper is to examine, through the interviews and questionaires I have made, the environmental perception and adjustment of the residents who live in the badly polluted Nannkang（南港）and Neihur（內湖）areas of Taipei. The approach I’ve taking is mainly the environmental perception study. According to my research, the residents’ image of the environment and behavior result from the informa?tion provided by the substantial environment, the specific places they live, and their characteristics. On the other hand, their behavior also affects the environment. The pollutions in the targeted area sinclude air, noise, the sanitary landfilI site in Neihur arid the water of Keelung river. The air pollution is caused by the suspended particulates and the noise by the bad traffic. Noticeably, the land of these two areas is highly used for industries and, moreover, the residents are seldom separated from plants. Residents are not satisfied with their living environment, especially those who live in Sanchung（三重）and Peikang（北港）neighborhoods. Attitudes toward pollution are related to differences in educational and occupational level. Residents who are the higher edlicational level and employed by government tend to be less satisfied with their living environment. Results also indicate that environmentaI perception can be explained by the locational attributes of residents. As to the adjustments, residents preferred to rely on emergency action such as "close windows" or "stay indoors”, some of them were considering moving away from these polluted areas, and significantly less willing to adopt the anti-polIution behavior.|
