Abstract:  This research explores the fundamental elements of Lingnan Han ethic's rural settlement, focusing on the built environment and the balance rules within the elements. On one hand, it breaks down such settlements’ characters into qualitative and quantitative elements from six aspects:site and land use, energy and resources, culture identities, building forms, health and wel being, and economic activities, in order to map the advantages and disadvantages of the settlements when facing the future development needs. On the other hand, it formulates a set of comprehensive assessment indicators, the ‘sustainable development capability index’, in order to make the diverse settlements comparable, without losing the assessment system’s ability of describing their characters and conditions on the six aspects. Through this methodology as well as the single figure, traceable, and comparable index, the conclusion of a settlement’s future development capability should be easily drawn, which can therefore guides the policy making and practices for a low carbon transformation of Lingnan Han ethic's rural settlements.
