This 1-pager shows the potential impacts of land-use change on flooding in the Los Baños subwatershed of The Philippines. The built-up area of the subwatershed is projected to increase by ~65% (based on participatory mapping exercises conducted with local government staff members), which is estimated to result in a ~6% increase in the flood...

グリーンインフラに通じる考え方で、生態系を活用した防災・減災を表すEco­DRR (Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reductionの略称)が国際的に注目を集めている。これは、生態系の管理、保全や再生により災害リスクを低減するとともに、人々が日ごろから享受している様々な自然の恵みを守っていこうとするものだ。日本から海外への政府開発援助(ODA)の実施を一元的に担うJICAでは、Eco-DRRを自然環境分野の4つの戦略課題の1つとして、これまでにも関連する取り組みを実施してきた。こうした背景から、海外におけるEco-DRRの社会実装推進にJICAが果たす役割が期待されている。8月30日にグリーンインフラ研究会が開催したセミナーでは、Eco...

Land cover (LC) has a significant impact on rainfall-runoff dynamics of a watershed, so LC maps are often incorporated into hydrological models to simulate how changes in climate or land management will affect water quantity/water quality within the watershed. The accuracy of a LC map can thus affect the accuracy of hydrological modelling results....

This study uses a spatially-explicit land-use/land-cover (LULC) modeling approach to model and map the future (2016–2030) LULC of the area surrounding the Laguna de Bay of Philippines under three different scenarios: ‘business-as-usual’, ‘compact development’, and ‘high sprawl’ scenarios. The Laguna de Bay is the largest lake in the Philippines and...
