Image segmentation and geographic object-based image analysis (GEOBIA) were proposed around the turn of the century as a means to analyze high-spatial-resolution remote sensing images. Since then, object-based approaches have been used to analyze a wide range of images for numerous applications. In this Editorial, we present some highlights of...

Briefing Note
ポイント IPBES地球規模評価報告書は、自然は人類の生存やSDGs達成に欠かせない基盤であり、この基盤が急速に失われていると報告した。SDGsの達成や自然との共生に向けて、経済、社会、政治、技術をまたぐ変容(トランスフォーマティブ・チェンジ)が求められる。 生物多様性と気候変動は不可分の課題である。2℃の気温上昇でサンゴ礁が99%減少するといった予測結果が示すように、気候変動が生物多様性を大きく損なう。一方、気候変動緩和目的の大規模なバイオエネルギー生産は生物多様性や食料や水の供給を脅かす。こうした生物多様性と気候変動の相互関係についてIPCCとIPBESの合同技術報告書の作成が予定されている。 新型コロナウイルスの感染拡大から人と自然との関わり方を問い直す必要がある...
Commissioned Report
環境省では、我が国とつながりの深いアジア・太平洋諸国を中心に、循環型社会構築のための廃棄物管理分野での協力を推進している。本業務は、そのような二国間協力のうち、マレーシア及びフィリピンに焦点を当て、廃棄物管理の改善を推進する一環として、我が国の廃棄物発電に関する技術面・制度面の知見を元にしたガイドライン等の策定やワークショップ等の開催を通じて両国における廃棄物発電施設の導入促進を図ることを目的に実施したものである。マレーシアとの協力では、マレーシアの廃棄物に関連する最新の動向を把握するため、報道情報の収集、関係機関へのヒアリング、文献調査による情報収集・整理を行った。また、廃棄物発電技術選定ガイドラインの作成を支援するとともに、...
