Ecosystem services-based land use suitability analysis in East Java Province

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Land Use planning method nowadays has been developed from many perspectives. One of the considered approaches is ecosystem based which is integrating ecosystem services in constructing land use plan scenario. The concept of ecosystem services is strictly linked to changes in land use and land cover, which affect ecosystem services, moreover this determine a decrease in global environmental and biodiversity loss. In this paper we aim to construct an ecosystem services-based industrial suitability map as an input for land use planning. The construction of ecosystem services map process involves expert judgement from stakeholders in order to know which ecosystem services classification should be taken into account in determining spatial allocation for industrial use. Furthermore, the carrying capacity map is constructed based on physical aspects such as morphology, water availability, disaster vulnerability, etc. In the construction process, stakeholders are also asked to give weight to the physical aspects, this is important since the data are then merged using weighted overlay method. The suitability map is resulted from the overlay of carrying capacity map and ecosystem services map in East Java Province scope.
