Green fractional vegetation cover (fc) is an important phenotypic factor in the fields of agriculture, forestry, and ecology. Spatially explicit monitoring of fc via relative vegetation abundance (RA) algorithms, especially those based on scaled maximum/minimum vegetation index (VI) values, has been widely investigated in remote sensing research....

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...
