本書は、九州の31の県・市町村(自治体)がゼロカーボンシティ表明に至った 背景、現状、課題などを整理し、国内外の動向を踏まえつつ概観することで、今後の展開の一助となることを目的に作成したものである。九州でゼロカーボン表明を行った自治体は、環境省のイニシティブをきっかけ にしながらも、庁内の内発的な動きから表明に至ったところが多かった。表明後の展開として、ほとんどの自治体が計画策定・改定を通じて施策の 具体化を進めるのと同時に、域内のステークホルダーに向けた意識啓発の 活動を始めていた。 不確実性を包含する2050年を見据えた取り組みを表明自治体が着実に進める上で、実施体制、定量化、ロードマップの作成に課題を抱えていることが明らかとなった。

日本政府は2015年、パリ協定が採択されたCOP21において、「美しい星への行動(ACE2.0)」を発表し、2020年までに気候変動に関する日本からの途上国支援を年間1.3兆円まで増やすことを約束した。これは国連気候変動枠組条約(UNFCCC)が目標とする、「2020年に先進国全体で年間1000億ドルの資金支援」へのコミットメントを示したものである。 昨年、目標最終年を迎えたものの、気候変動分野における日本から途上国への支援資金に関し、適応に特化した分析が十分に行われているとはいえない。そこで本稿では、UNFCCCが先進国(付属書I国)に提出を求めている隔年報告書から情報を抽出・分析し、日本から途上国へ提供されている気候変動適応分野の資金額、対象地域、対象分野等の概要とその変化を俯瞰した。
