Commissioned Report
TPP協定「環境章」において、各国による違法伐採の抑止に働く行政措置の強化が規定されるとともに、日EU・EPAの「貿易と持続可能な開発章」においても、各国が違法伐採及び関連する貿易への対処に貢献することが規定されている。これらに対応するために、我が国の違法伐採木材への対策として平成29年5月に施行された「合法伐採木材等の流通及び利用の促進に関する法律」(通称「クリーンウッド法」。以下「クリーンウッド法」という。)を着実に運用していく必要がある。 本事業は、林野庁ホームページ「クリーンウッド・ナビ」に掲載されている生産国リスク情報を、木材関連事業者等の利用者がより活用しやすくするための検討及び情報の整理を行うことを目的とした。具体的には、①リスク情報に基づく基本的な合法性確認(デュー...
Commissioned Report
平成29年5月に「合法伐採木材等の流通及び利用の促進に関する法律」(通称「クリーンウッド法」)が施行され、同年11月からは、同法に基づく木材関連事業者の登録が始まった。このような中、木材関連事業者が同法に基づく合法性の確認等を効率的に行うことができるよう、国は同法第4条に基づき、同年5月から情報提供サイト「クリーンウッド・ナビ」を公開し、国別・地域別の違法伐採関連情報の提供を行っている。本事業は、「クリーンウッド・ナビ」の掲載情報の更新・拡充を行うとともに、掲載情報に関する事業者等からの問合せに対応することを目的とした。具体的には、①生産国における情報調査(カナダ ブリティッシュ・コロンビア州とオーストリア)、②「クリーンウッド・ナビ」の更新情報に関するコンテンツ作成、③「クリーンウッド...

Although it is widely acknowledged that forests provide critical ecosystem services for human survival and well-being, in the Asia-Pacific region forests are being converted to other land uses and degraded at alarming rates. One underlying factor for this destruction of forests is market failure. Forests are cleared for other land uses or degraded...
Policy Brief
UNESCAP - Urban Nexus Policy Brief 2019
Key messages ✓ Cities are home to over half of the world’s population and are centers of growing resource demand. In many cities, the immense demand for resources is driven by the conventional silo approach to resource management, inefficient production systems, and resource-intensive lifestyles. Efforts to improve efficiency in urban systems by...
Policy Brief
UNESCAP - Urban Nexus Policy Brief 2019
Key Messages: ✓ The Asia-Pacific region is the world’s largest emitter of GHGs, and its cities account for a major share of these emissions. Out of the top 10 CO2 emitting cities globally, six are located in the region. Asia-Pacific cities have key roles to play in achieving the 1.5oC/2oC global climate targets. ✓ A total of 45 countries in the...
Technical Report
The International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative (IPSI) is a global network to promote collective efforts for sustainability in socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS), and thereby to contribute to the realisation of “living in harmony with nature”. The Satoyama Development Mechanism (SDM) is a seed funding programme...
Report Chapter
Industry, in the context of this chapter, is mostly confined to the strict definition of the word: -“economic activity concerned with the processing of raw materials and manufacture of goods in factories”. Industry has a major impact on nature and its biodi- versity in Asia and the Pacific, as it does elsewhere in the world. Industry impacts...
Issue Brief
Socio-ecological production landscapes and seascapes (SEPLS) can contribute to global goals for biodiversity conservation and dealing with climate change, while also contributing locally to human security and wellbeing. SEPLS are, however, under threat around the world. SEPLS have been promoted under the Satoyama Initiative by the International...
Book
The Asia-Pacific region faces a fundamental dilemma. Over recent decades the region has achieved tremendous economic growth that has lifted millions of its people out of poverty and raised living standards, but in many places the way land is being used to generate this growth is unsustainable. Land has been exploited – growing economies regardless...
