Issue Brief
「合法伐採木材等の流通及び利用の促進に関する法律(通称「クリーンウッド法」」は、2016年5月20日に公布され、2017年5月20日に施行された。またその実施のため、施行規則、判断基準省令、様々な文章が主務省(農林水産省、経済産業省及び国土交通省)によって定められている。しかし様々な規定がこれらの文章の中で相互に引用されつつ書かれているため、全体を通じて理解することが難しい。このため、様々なクリーンウッド法関連文章をまとめて事項ごとに再整理し、理解の促進を試みた。

In Japan, abandonment of forest management and underuse of forest resources are substantial challenges to environmental protection and sustainable wood production, while in many other countries, leaving a forest untouched may be perceived as positive for conserving the forest. This study thus analyses the scientifc knowledge landscape on the causes...
Working Paper
Enhanced collaboration with countries with advanced technologies is essential to closing greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation gaps in developing countries’ energy consuming and producing sectors. However, traditional models of technology transfer tend to focus on the sale of expensive technologies to developing countries, often subsidised through aid or...

Image segmentation and geographic object-based image analysis (GEOBIA) were proposed around the turn of the century as a means to analyze high-spatial-resolution remote sensing images. Since then, object-based approaches have been used to analyze a wide range of images for numerous applications. In this Editorial, we present some highlights of...
Working Paper
While the initial pieces of evidence indicate that COVID-19 induced economic slowdown and lockdown present short-term benefits to air quality and the environment, these also pose a double-edged challenge in the long-term. On one side, the slowing down of the economy can have an adverse impact on countries’ ongoing efforts towards climate mitigation...
