近年、木材輸入国において、違法伐採対策が法制度化され実施されている。違法伐採対策法の導入の目的は、その国における違法伐採木材製品の輸入、流通を減少させることである。法律の導入からその目的が達成されるまでには、規制対象である木材輸入事業者 が①自身の行うビジネスが法律の対象であることを認識し、②法律の要求を理解し、③法律を遵守することで、最終的に、④輸入先の変更などの行動変化を起こすというプロセス がある。そして、この目的を達成するためには、政府の法律の執行や運用が重要である。本稿では、ドイツとオーストラリアにおける、政府による違法伐採対策法の運用 状況を報告する。ドイツは、規制対象事業者の検査に重点を置き、EU諸国のうち最も積極的で厳しい法の運用を行っている。一方...

Climate change affects the periodicity and severity of such hazards, and eventually the well-being of many rural communities in the region, including semi-arid Ghana. Enhancing the resilience of local communities to droughts and floods...

To classify Very-High-Resolution (VHR) imagery, Geographic Object Based Image Analysis (GEOBIA) is the most popular method used to produce high quality Land-Use/Land-Cover maps. A crucial step in GEOBIA is the appropriate parametrization of the segmentation algorithm prior to the classification. However, little effort has been made to automatically...

This 1-pager shows the potential impacts of land-use change on flooding in the Pila-Victoria subwatershed of The Philippines. The built-up area of the subwatershed is projected to increase by ~88% (based on participatory mapping exercises conducted with local government staff members), which is estimated to result in a ~5% increase in the flood...
