Abstract

CASBEE-City, a comprehensive environmental assessment tool for municipalities (cities, towns, and villages), was developed to support citizens, local governments, and other stakeholders in understanding their local conditions. In this study, the aim was to examine the tools practical effectiveness through a nationwide questionnaire survey. The statistical relationship was analyzed between the subjective assessment results (citizens' satisfaction with local conditions) and the objective CASBEE-City assessment results, which are based on public statistical information. A clear relationship was found between the subjective and objective assessment results for municipalities, thus verifying the tools effectiveness.
