本業務では、今後世界及び我が国が長期目標を実現していくにあたり、いかに脱炭素社会への遷移を果たすか、またそのためには短中期的にどのような取り組みを実施していくか「脱炭素社会への遷移(トランジション)」のための方策を調査・検討することを目的とした。 そのため以下の5つの項目について調査を行い、結果を取りまとめたものである。 (1)欧州等の産業構造の遷移(トランジション)戦略の事例調査及び手法の解析 (2)海外における統合評価モデルによる長期戦略等に係る定量分析事例の情報収集 (3)炭素中立社会への遷移(トランジション)に対応する途上国の発展政策調査の実施 (4)低炭素社会国際研究ネットワーク(LCS-RNet)第11回年次会合の開催 (5)脱炭素社会に向けての各国の取組状況の調査

Japan's current NDC targets a 26% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 compared to the 2013 level. However, it has become clear that there is room to raise this target by matching the economic growth assumptions made when the NDC was formulated with actual figures, and making them more realistic. Drawing on the study’s results, IGES...

国連環境計画(UNEP)が発表した「Emissions Gap(排出ギャップ)Report 2019」エグゼクティブ・サマリーの日本語翻訳版(暫定非公式訳)。2018年に排出された温室効果ガス(GHG)の総量、今後予想される排出量及びパリ協定目標を達成するための排出量との差である「排出ギャップ」などについて様々な分析を行っている。特に、世界のGHG排出量の8割近くを占めるG20メンバーによる早急な取り組み強化の必要性、再生可能エネルギーの利用拡大、エネルギー効率化を検証し、世界の総排出削減を進め、排出ギャップを埋める野心的な方策を提案し、経済・社会全体の革新的な変化の必要性を強調している。

This paper explores Japan's energy and emissions-related choices up to 2050 using the Japan 2050 Low Carbon Navigator (Low Carbon Navigator), an energy and emissions scenario simulation tool based on the 2050 Pathways Calculator model. Using illustrative examples and scenarios, the paper demonstrates some unique features of the Low Carbon Navigator...
7th International Symposium on Environmental Sociology in East Asia (ISESEA)
The Communique of the G7 Summit in 2018 reaffirmed their strong commitment to implement the Paris Agreement through reducing emissions while strengthening resilience and reducing vulnerability as well as ensuring a just transition. Discussions of climate and energy justice, the key basis of the aforementioned consideration, focus on who produced no...

“Just Transition” is an important, brand new concept to implement policies towards decarbonisation of the power sector (DPS) in Japan. However, a knowledge gap still remains between this concept and policy discussion at a practical level. Therefore, using the existing DPS scenarios and employment factors for the power sector based on extended input...
