Reducing Urban Poverty within the Spatial Development (Re-directing Commercial Land use and Accessibility on Bengkulu Municipal)

Harmes Harmes, Bambang Juanda, Ernan Rustiadi, Baba Barus


Land use, accessibility and poverty are regional and urban development issues which when addressed fragmented in policy and regulation able to negate each other. Land and accessibility can be used to reduce poverty through redistribution of its using in regional or urban spatial plan. Both of them is a permanent input for development. This paper aims to explain the spatial varying relationship among the commercial land use and accessibility on urban poverty in each unit of observation. Geographically Weighted Regression (GWR) is a suitable analytical framework in which spatial dependency is taken into account. The model parameter estimate are able to reveal the influence of the independent to the dependent variable at each location of observation, this model known as local regression. The result indicates that the relationship between commercial land use and accessibility on poverty are varied, across the point of estimation. Some location  has positive relationship, that means increasing poverty. The negative local regression coeficient means reduce poverty. Policy implementation on regional and urban spatial plan, need to be aware this contradiction. Re-directing commercial land use and accessibility in spatial planning are urgently to reduce poverty and does not induce poverty permanent.


commercial land use; accessibility; varying spatial relationship; poverty reduction.
