2018年4月に閣議決定された第5次環境基本計画において、「地域循環共生圏」の概念が提唱されました。「地域循環共生圏」とは、各地域が美しい自然景観等の地域資源を最大限活用しながら自立・分散型の社会を形成しつつ、それぞれの地域の特性に応じて、他地域と資源を補完し支え合うことにより、地域の活力が最大限に発揮されることを目指す考え方です。本事例集では、他の国や国際社会に参考となるような地域循環共生圏に関する日本の16の先進的取組を紹介することで、世界の各地で地域循環共生圏を創造する取組を後押しすることを目的としています。 本書のダウンロードはこちら(PDF) https://www.env.go.jp/policy/chiikijunkan/pdf/jirei_jp.pdf

持続可能な開発目標(SDGs)は、着実に社会に浸透しているが、本当に世界で目指すべき目標なのだろうか。また、多様な主体が関与する SDGs に対し、いかにして実施を効果的に進めていけばよいのだろうか。これらの疑問に答えるため、本稿では、第一に、SDGs の意義を検討し、第二に、主に日本を対象に、SDGs を実施していくにあたってのマルチレベル・ガバナンスのあり方を考察した。SDGs の意義としては、①持続可能な開発を阻む様々な問題について、達成期限のある具体的な目標を包括的に定めたこと、②統合的な解決が求められるようになったこと、③変革を促しやすくなったこと、④持続可能な開発を世界の主要議題に押し上げたこと、の 4 点を導き出した。マルチレベル・ガバナンスは、垂直的調整、水平的調整...

Payments for ecosystem services (PES) is a market-based mechanism aimed at sustaining the flow of such services. Through a PES scheme, beneficiaries or users of the ecosystem service(s) compensate the provider or manager of those services, directly or indirectly. The provider and beneficiaries agree on the terms and conditions of the PES and...

Stockholm World Water Week 2018 Session on "Groundwater-based natural infrastructure solutions: The missing link to resilience?"
Kumamoto is a rare case of fully functional PES for over 13 years; Willingness between buyers and sellers is one of the basic conditions for establishing PES. However, willingness are always not sufficient condition for groundwater recharge, which are difficult to quantify and verify; Role of intermediary institutions such as local agriculture...

This study is an effort to trace the implication of tidal fluctuation on coastal groundwater quality for different aquifers in case of Saijo plain, western Japan, through major ion, heavy metal and isotopic chemistry as well as to estimate aquifer parameters by tidal response method. Time series analysis for chemical characteristics depicts that...
