Abstract [en]

Over the next decades, China will face various thorny issues caused by the fasturbanization progress. Therefore, Caofeidian eco-city, being the most prominenteco-city project in China, is currently in the course of planning and construction,thereby providing a sound model for future urban development. The master plan of 30square kilometers area and current situation is fully analyzed by the PEBOSCAinterdisciplinary framework based on the UN Habitat agenda. To better realize theeco-city in a Chinese context, a series of interdisciplinary problems and potentialchallenges of Caofeidian eco-city are identified and corresponding interdisciplinarysolutions are presented in this paper. Deferring to the different city developmentstages, a tentative schedule and back casting goals are set to assess the Ecocityperformance in the next 50 years.
