Abstract The border area between the South and North Korea is considered a stage for promoting Green Detent through the transformation of the Demilitarized Zone into the Green Peace Zone. This paper proposes ‘Prosuming-index’ composed of items to evaluate the multi-layered nature of industrial and infrastructure projects in the ecological and environmental fields planned in the border area. Based on the prosuming-index, we derived the following four types of potential for Green Detent practice in the border area―first, the Incheon and Ganghwa regions as ‘a logistics/human network and agricultural/fishery production area’, second, the northern Gyeonggi region as a ‘cooperative network area based on the smart technology industries’, third, the western Gangwon and the parts of nothern Gyeonggi region, as ‘a multiple prosumer’s area based on carbon neutral technologies’, lastly, the eastern Gangwon region, as ‘a transition area from idle or aged infrastructure to green infrastructure through the renewable energy industries’.
