    Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) have very significant contribution to the growth and development of the economy of Bekasi City with a total of approximately 203,000 units. The large number of food processing MSMEs in Bekasi City has not been accompanied by the formation of a spatially integrated MSMEs center zoning. This research aims to understand the spatial distribution and the determination of the zones of food processing MSMEs in Bekasi City. The research was conducted in Bekasi City during February-August 2019. Data were obtained through data tracing from related agencies, field observations, and interviews with experts. Analytical methods include Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) to determine the weight of each parameter, and Multi Criteria Evaluation (MCE) for determining development centers. Analysis shows that the number of selected MSMEs was 220 samples, with the highest number of MSMEs in Pondok Gede District. Food processing MSME development zones in Bekasi City are divided into three development zones, namely development zone 1, development zone 2, and development zone 3. Development zone 1 and development zone 2 are the best zones located in West Bekasi District, Jatiasih District, and Jatisampurna District. Development Zone 2 consists of North Bekasi District, Medan Satria District, Pondok Gede District, and Pondok Melati District because the two zones are adjacent to Jakarta City. Meanwhile, development zone 3 should receive special attention, consisting of Bantar Gebang District, South Bekasi District, East Bekasi District, Mustika Jaya District, and Rawalumbu District

    Rebuilding our Neighborhoods: Improving New York State Housing Policy to Better Meet Upstate Needs

    Get PDF
    New York faces a wide variety of housing challenges. While in the New York City region, where the population is growing, availability and affordability are the most pressing concerns, upstate regions have a different set of problems stemming from population loss, housing vacancy, abandonment, and deterioration. To address the full range of issues, state housing policy needs a variety of tools in its tool box. This policy brief discusses four ways that state housing policy can better address the needs of upstate regions such as Buffalo: Support holistic neighborhood revitalization, using Buffalo’s award-winning Green Development Zone as a model; Restore and enhance funding streams for small projects and housing repairs; Adjust New York’s Low Income Housing Tax Credit Qualified Allocation Plan to better address upstate needs; and Revise the DHCR Design Handbook to better facilitate rehabilitation projects

    Abstract Sustainable tourism management can generate income and enhance related business that contribute to economic growth at both local and national level, promote natural and environmental conservation and local culture, create careers and income for local people as well as building long-term strength of local communities and the nation. This research study aims to 1) examine the level of the following variables; tourist attraction potential, leadership, government policy, innovation and sustainable tourism management, 2) explore the relationship among those variables; tourist attraction potential, government policy, leadership and innovation affecting the sustainable tourism management in the east coast tourism development zone, and 3) develop the model of sustainable tourism management in the east coast tourism development zone. The mixed research methodology was applied between quantitative and qualitative terms. In view of the quantitative term, the sample group consisted of 360 tourism operators in the east coast tourism development zone whereas its sample size was calculated based on the 20-time criteria of the observed variables and systematic sampling. Data collection was undertaken through questionnaires that were later analyzed by the structural equation modelling. For the qualitative term, an in-depth interview was conducted with 20 primary informants who were tourism management expertise in the east coast tourism development zone. The research findings revealed that the variables; tourist attraction potential, leadership, government policy, innovation and sustainable tourism management in the east coast tourism development zone were all at a high level, 2) the variables ; tourist attraction potential, leadership, government policy and innovation affected the sustainable tourism management in the east coast tourism development zone with statistical significance level of .05, and 3) the sustainable tourism management model as developed by the researcher was called GLTI-STM Model (G = Government Policy, L = Leadership, T = Tourist Attractions Potential, I = Innovation, STM = Sustainable Tourism Management). Additionally, the qualitative findings indicated that to manage the sustainable tourism in the east coast tourism development zone, the application of new technology and approaches such as 3D (Data Digitizing, Data Sharing, Digitalized Process), intelligence data base management system for tourism data, ecosystem strategy, creation of virtual tour experience and tourism applications are recommended for development and improvement of tourism patterns according to the sustainable tourism principle. The findings in this study can be also applied as a guideline to determine the policy for conservation of natural resources in parallel with the sustainable tourist attraction development, and to standardize the tourism management to be more effective at the international level for future creation of economic value

    Buffalo Niagara at the Crossroads: How State Energy Policies can Lead Western New York to a Green, Prosperous, and Just Future

    Get PDF
    Buffalo Niagara stands at a climate crossroads. Looking down one road, we can see a chance to rebuild impoverished neighborhoods with quality jobs, green affordable housing, community-owned renewable energy, urban farms, and community gardens, building on the highly successful example of the Green Development Zone on the city’s West Side. Looking down another road, we can see an inequitable region made even more unjust and vulnerable by climate change impacts such as heat waves, extreme weather events, and governments too overwhelmed with emergency response to provide quality services to their residents. Which road we travel will depend in part on the new energy policies that New York State is in the process of creating. With thoughtful legislation and regulation, we have a narrow window of opportunity to move rapidly toward clean energy and to make sure, in the transition, that our most vulnerable workers and residents gain, rather than lose, from the new economy that is rising around our eyes

    In this paper, the second installment of our three-part study on the development of brownfields policy in the state of Wisconsin, we use case studies to explore the implementation of the policy at three scales: 1) two statewide initiatives, the Voluntary Party Liability Exemption process and the Sustainable Urban Development Zone program; 2) the efforts of two Wisconsin cities, West Allis and Wausau, to promote brownfields redevelopment across their neighborhoods; and 3) project-specific uses of institutional, regulatory, and financial innovations to encourage the revitalization of specific areas. Throughout the paper, we focus on the role of economic incentives, regulatory flexibility, regulatory structure, and the behavioral culture of brownfields stakeholders. We base our work on interviews of nearly 70 individuals from public, private-for-profit, private-nonprofit, and tribal organizations.Brownfields, contamination, hazardous waste, regulatory reform, Wisconsin
