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...

Fortunately, since emissions contributing to air pollution and climate change often come...

While shrinkage has been a debated topic in regional studies in the last decade, the shock brought by Covid-19 on the global economy adds further concerns for cities and regions already suffering from depopulation.

本稿は、コロナ禍における大気汚染・気候変動・保健の関係性を説明し、これらの課題に対する統合的なアプローチの必要性を強調している。各国でコロナ復興策が決定される中、より良い復興を実現するには、短期的にはコロナ対策を実施し、長期的には温室効果ガス(GHG)を多く排出するような開発を避けるといった、統合的な判断が鍵となる。IGESのトリプルRフレームワークを活用し、大気の質や気候、ひいては健康の向上につながるための統合的な取り組みについて述べている。

本稿は、Asian Co-benefits Partnershipのポリシーブリーフ(英語のみ)の一部を基に再構成されたものである。
