In Climate Change Governance in Asia
Author:
Asia is an extremely diverse region, in terms of the political regimes of its constituent countries, and of their level of development and the nature of their civil societies. As such, its countries are producing a wide range of governance approaches to climate change. Covering the diversity of climate change governance in Asia, this book presents...

In Remote Sensing
Author:
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...

Land use/land cover (LULC) maps are now being used across disciplines for many different types of applications, e.g., to analyze urban heat islands or rainfall-runoff dynamics. Traditional map accuracy metrics are limited in this regard, as they only assess LULC map thematic accuracy. In reality, some types of misclassification lead to larger...

Key point Analyzed several water quality parameters (pH, electrical conductivity (EC), total dissolved solids (TDS), Chloride (Cl), and temperature) based on 35 well samples collected by local government staff in Oriental Mindoro Province of the Philippines. Cl- concentration was calculated using salinity values based on Equation: Sal (ppt) = 0...

A few studies have evaluated the impact of land use land cover (LULC) change on surface water quality in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta (VMD), one of the most productive agricultural deltas in the world. This study aims to evaluate water quality parameters inside full- and semi-dike systems and outside of the dike system during the wet and dry season...

The introduction of renewable energy (RE) is essential for building a sustainable society. However, RE can cause conflicts between energy production and biodiversity conservation. This study conducted a scenario analysis to evaluate potential conflicts in the nexuses between energy and biodiversity for the Bekambeushi River watershed located in...

A few decades ago, the surface waterbodies in Hanoi, Vietnam, were an important source of water for various usages. However, because of the rapid global changes, the current status of most of the river system is very critical from the environmental, aesthetic and commercial usage points of view. Henceforth, this research work focused on assessing...
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...
