ポスト2020 年生物多様性世界枠組の検討が現在進められていて、次回のCBD 第15 回締約国会議(CBD-COP15)で採択される予定である。日本では、これを受けた生物多様性国家戦略の改定に向けて議論が進められている。今後、新たな生物多様性国家戦略の下、自治体による生物多様性地域戦略(以下、地域戦略と記載)の改定又は新規策定が進むことが期待されている。PANCES*の研究チームは2017 年に、当時既に地域戦略を策定していた70 基礎自治体を対象に地域戦略の策定と実施に関するアンケート調査を実施した。また、全都道府県を対象とする同様のアンケート調査や、PANCES のモデルサイト(北海道、石川県、新潟県、沖縄県)における事例研究も実施した。この他、地域戦略の策定...
