Commissioned Report
2050 年までに温室効果ガスの排出を世界で半減させるためには、経済成長が著しいアジアにおいて、持続可能な低炭素社会の構築に向けた動きを加速させることが必要である。近年、経済成長著しいアジアの都市では、急激な都市化により、資源やエネルギー消費量が増大し、交通量増加に伴う交通渋滞が頻発しており、生活や経済活動に伴う廃棄物、排水、排ガス、温室効果ガス(GHG)等の排出量が増加するなど、住民の生活環境の悪化を招いている。これらの都市の経済成長を維持しながら快適な生活環境を守っていくには、効率的な資源循環や省エネ施策を推進し、環境負荷を最小限に留める持続可能な都市形成にシフトしていかなければならない。 我が国は、開発途上国においてこのような取組を支援すべく、GHG...
Commissioned Report
急激に都市化する開発途上国の都市においては、経済成長を維持しながら快適で持続可能な都市環境を実現していくために、効率的な資源循環や省エネ施策を推進し、環境負荷を最小限に留める「低炭素でレジリエントな持続可能な社会」への移行が重要な課題となっている。昨今、都市・自治体を含む非国家主体の重要性が認識されている。本業務では、このような都市の重要性に鑑み、開発途上国の都市のニーズに合致するとともに、本邦自治体や企業が有する都市の環境改善ノウハウや技術等を発信しやすく取りまとめ、それらを研修を通じて途上国の都市に効果的・体系的に共有・移転することを仲介・支援する仕組みについて検討を行った。具体的には、開発途上国における研修ニーズおよび国内自治体が持つ提供可能なコンテンツの調査...
