Policy Report
A diverse mix of environmental problems, such as traffic congestion, increasing amounts of waste, and air and water pollution, have surfaced around the world in line with rapidly growing populations and urban development. Climate change has also resulted in more frequent incidences of localised torrential rains, floods, droughts and landslides in...
Policy Report
世界の多くの国では、急速な人口増加と都市化に伴い交通渋滞、廃棄物の増加、大気・水質汚染など様々な環境問題が顕在化している。また、気候変動により、世界各地で局地的な豪雨や洪水、渇水・土砂災害などが頻発化しており、社会経済基盤である都市の活動にも多大な影響が出てきている。その一方で、都市は世界のCO2排出量の70%以上を占めると推定されていることから、これからの都市開発において、気候変動対策の観点も含めたなまちづくりを推進することが不可欠になっている。  2020年を迎えた今年、気候変動対策の法的枠組みとして2016年に発効したパリ協定が始まった。実施に力点が置かれる中、都市や民間企業のようなノンステートアクターのアクションに対する期待はこれまで以上に高まっており...

Commissioned Report
パリ協定に掲げる今世紀後半に脱炭素社会(温室効果ガス排出量が正味ゼロの状態)を実現させるためには、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...

In Case Studies on Transport Policy
A large proportion of Asia’s urban population is served by informal modes of transport known as paratransit. Many of the vehicles in this informal sector contribute to rising air pollution and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Energy-efficient technologies could make paratransit environmentally sustainable. However, the purchase and use of clean...
