In early 2000, Korean government introduced the Landscape Agreement, one of policies to manage and maintain landscape by residences' volunteerism as top-down urban management methods which were dependent on public projects and policies have been experienced limited capacities, The ultimate intention to introduce the Landscape Agreement is to maintain, manage and form landscape based on characteristics of each area and it is also used as one of urban management methods. The Landscape Agreement was introduced when the government enacted 'the Landscape Law' and was expected that it contributes to landscape management by residents themselves. However, actual uses per Agreement were out of our expectation for last 10 years. It has adopted by the government or municipalities rather than residents selected when needed. Passive adoption from the actual cases doubts about existence and effectiveness of the policy. Uses of the Agreement were inadequate since its introduction. In this background, this research brings up issues of actual uses of the Agreement in the actual cases which have adopted the Agreement and suggests its capability and improvements from the perspectives of raising support policies.
With understandings on uses of the Landscape Agreement, this research emphasizes that support policies from government or municipalities are important and support policies could assist the Agreement to be used effectively. This approach also will help residents manage their landscape with active participation.
