The lack of strategic planning in stormwater management has made rapidly urbanizing
cities more vulnerable to urban water issues than in the past. Low infiltration rates, increase in
peak river discharge, and recurrence of urban floods and waterlogging are clear signs of unplanned
rapid urbanization. As with many other low to middle-income...

持続的な森林・自然資源管理の推進に際して、国際開発業界では、社会林業、保護地域の協働管理、REDD+などの概念を示し、開発資金によって概念を現場適用すると共に、インパクトを環境的・経済的・社会的観点から研究してきた。一方、概念の現場適用を担うプロジェクトは、概念を運用する活動アプローチを開発・実践してきたが、この活動アプローチに関する研究が十分に行われ、実践にフィードバックしてきたとは言い難い。本プレゼンでは、実務家と研究者が連携し、現場における活動アプローチの論理を強化・方法論化し、発信していく作業について論じる。

Widespread urban expansion around the world, combined with rapid demographic and
climatic changes, has resulted in serious pollution issues in many coastal water bodies. To help
formulate coastal management strategies to mitigate the impacts of these extreme changes (e.g.,
local land-use or climate change adaptation policies), research...

Global Food Price Crisis of 2008-2012 Implications of Transboundary Risks on Food Supply

European Climate Change Adaptation Conference

Food price volatility is an important impact of transboundary climate risks. However, food prices tend to mix with many other events extraneous to agriculture making their prediction a difficult task. This presentation presents a case study of 2008 and 2012 global food price crisis and provides insights in terms of their transboundary nature, the...
