In Computers, Environment and Urban Systems

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...

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.


Fact Sheet

本ファクトシートシリーズは日本の気候変動適応政策に関してテーマ別に概要を整理し、一般向けに気候変動適応とその政策について解説する。今回のテーマである海洋と沿岸に関する気候変動適応はこれまで国際的にも国内でも十分に情報が整理されてこなかった。そこで、本稿では独自に4つの分野に分類した後、各分野における主な気候変動の影響とそれに対応する国内の政策について整理した。また、関連し合う個別の政策や指針が複数存在している状況から、どのように整合性をとり、政策を統合していくかに関して、国際的に提唱 されている方法論を3つ紹介する。
