Submission to Policy Process

新型コロナウィルス(COVID-19)による社会・環境・経済への広範な影響を受け、政策立案者にはプラネタリー・ヘルス(地球の健康)を取り戻すことが求められている。 地球環境戦略研究機関(IGES)による新型コロナに関するポジションペーパー3.0は、健康な地球を目指し、実現可能なアクションについて提案し、野心的な政策立案を支援することを目的としている。 本ペーパーでは、「プラネタリー・ヘルス」と「ワンヘルス」の基本概念を紹介した後、グリーンイシューである生態系関連、そしてブルーイシューである水関連の提案を行い、さらに、ブラウンイシューである気候変動やグレーイシューである大気汚染の問題に対処するための経済刺激策のモメンタムを適切に維持する方法を検討する。最後に、生態系と気候の保護を統合しつつ...

Briefing Note

COP26に向け、多くの国がカーボンニュートラルやネットゼロ、またはそれに近い野心的な目標を掲げた。これまで目標の多くは、二酸化炭素削減(CO2)に焦点が当てられてきた。将来世代が温暖化による最悪の事態を避けるため、長期的にCO2の大幅削減を目指すのは当然である。一方で、CO2削減より迅速に気候変動を緩和できる可能性として、メタンなど短寿命気候汚染物質(SLCP)削減の重要性への認識も高まっている。

グローバルメタン誓約や、SLCP削減に取り組む国際パートナーシップ(CCAC)の新戦略等、今回のCOPに合わせ、米国やEUが旗振り役となり加速した国際社会のメタン排出削減の動きを紹介する。

Peer-reviewed Article

The United States began liberalizing its wholesale and retail electricity market to lower costs, increase efficiency, and curb oil imports in the 1990s. Reductions in carbon dioxide (CO2) were a possible desirable side effect of these reforms. In recent years, concerns over climate change have prompted state governments in the United States to...

Discussion Paper

Japanese companies have pioneered the development of a large number of low-carbon technologies (LCTs). As a rapidly expanding economy with burgeoning energy requirements, India offers a significant potential market for Japanese LCTs. The industry sector in India accounts for a significant share of commercial energy use and hence carbon dioxide (CO2...
