平成2811月にパリ協定が発効され、令和2年(2020 年)を迎えた今年、いよいよパリ協定の実施段階に入った。パリ協定でも、中央政府に加えて自治体・都市を含む非政府主体による気候変動を加速させることが掲げられているが、具体的な地域の気候変動対策やプロジェクトを検討・実施するうえで、都市や自治体はキープレーヤーである。世界全体での脱炭素社会の実現に向けては、特に経済成長が著しいアジアにおいて、持続可能な脱炭素社会、またそれの通過点としての低炭素社会の構築への動きを加速させることが必要であり、社会経済の発展を支える活動の場である都市の脱炭素化・低炭素化に向けて、国際的にも都市の取組を支援する動きが強化されてきている。また、postコロナを見据え、環境政策とのトレードオフの最小化...

Commentary (Op. Ed)

10月26日に行われた、菅内閣総理大臣の所信表明演説で「2050年脱炭素社会の実現」を目指すとした方針についての、IGESコメントです。

脱炭素化の方向性と時間軸を明確に示すことは、企業や投資家の長期的視点に立った経営・投資判断を支えることにつながります。また、2050年脱炭素化は、パリ協定が目指す1.5℃目標にも整合する非常に野心的な目標で、総理大臣自らが2050年脱炭素化社会の実現を宣言したことをIGESは大いに歓迎します。

一方で、新型コロナウイルスによって減速した日本経済の立て直しに向けた経済復興策は、欧州における「欧州グリーンディール」のような、経済刺激策を気候変動やその他の環境課題への対策と結び付ける対策が乏しく...

Developing countries must submit forest reference emission levels (FRELs) to the UNFCCC to receive incentives for REDD+ activities (e.g. reducing emissions from deforestation/forest degradation, sustainable management of forests, forest carbon stock conservation/enhancement). These FRELs are generated based on historical CO2 emissions in the land...

Soil moisture (SM) plays a key role in many environmental processes and has a high spatial and temporal variability. Collecting sample SM data through field surveys (e.g. for validation of remote sensing-derived products) can be very expensive and time consuming if a study area is large, and producing accurate SM maps from the sample point data is...
