Many developing countries in Asia are experiencing rapid urban expansion in climate hazard prone areas. To support climate resilient urban planning efforts, here we present an approach for simulating future urban land-use changes and evaluating potential flood exposure at a high spatial resolution (30 m) and national scale. As a case study, we...

Discussion Paper

温暖化に伴う水害の激甚化を受けて、地方自治体において防災・減災対策と適応策を統合し、適応能力と感受性により構成される脆弱性を低減させることが急務である。しかし、適応能力は多様な社会経済的な要素を含むため、政策上どの構成要素が重要であるかに関する包括的な検討は限定的である。そこで、本稿は、アンケート調査を実施し、地方自治体の現在の防災対策実施状況(ハード・ソフト・転換策の合計44対策)と各対策に関する将来の適応策の必要性認識に基づいて適応能力と感受性の構成要素の重要度を評価した。結果として、重要度が高く評価された適応能力要素は、地域コミュニティの「インフラ」(防災用)、「教育」(自主避難判断力、危険認知度)、「情報」(監視警戒力、情報伝達力)、「コミュニティガバナンス」(避難誘導力)、並びに...

Lichen is an important food source for caribou in Canada. Lichen mapping using remote sensing (RS) images could be a challenging task, however, as lichens generally appear in unevenly distributed, small patches, and could resemble surficial features. Moreover, collecting lichen labeled data (reference data) is expensive, which restricts the...

Presentation
Asia Pacific Climate Week 2021 Side event "Utilizing forest functions for mitigating and adapting to climate change"

In our presentation, we propose an approach to consider wellbeing of local communities who live closely to forests for climate change mitigation and adaptation. We discuss the approach by referring to an issue of energy scarcity in a community and REDD+ as a measure to address the issue.

 

Presentation

科学者も政策決定者もこれまで別々の課題として対応してきた生物多様性と気候変動の課題への統合的な取組を強化すべく、2020年12月に生物多様性と気候変動に関するIPBESとIPCCの合同ワークショップが開催されました。このワークショップからのキーメッセージを含むワークショップ報告書、ならびにその科学的根拠を整理した科学的成果(Scientific Outcomes)が2021年6月に発表されました。このスライドでは、日本の一般読者向けにワークショップ報告書の内容を日本語で短く解説しています。

Scientists and policymakers have been tackling biodiversity loss and climate change, the two most...
