Working Paper
This is the summary of a working paper to strengthen linkage between UNFCCC and Cities for transformative actions. In order to accomplish 2-degree Celsius target, national target and local climate change actions should be linked. UNFCCC/COP needs a mechanism linking the mid-term national vision, and climate change actions by the Non-State Actor...
Working Paper
This paper assesses the potential for improving the CO2 intensity of Japan’s electricity sector—the units of carbon dioxide emitted per units of electricity generated—by examining the potential for the feasibility of restarting nuclear power plants and increasing renewable electricity generation by 2030. The analysis shows that, utilizing these two...
Working Paper
On 17 July 2015, the Japanese government unveiled its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 26% below FY 2013 levels by FY 2030 (25.4% reduction below FY 2005 levels). The government also approved the outlook for long-term energy supply and demand, which stipulates that in 2030 the share...

 本研究は、産業革命前からの地球温暖化を一定のレベルに抑制するための累積温室効果ガス(GHG)排出許容量である世界全体のカーボン・バジェットと、GHG排出削減努力の各国分担において広く参照される公平性基準に基づいた努力分担方法を用いて、日本に「公平」に割り当てられるカーボン・バジェットを算出した。同時に、日本について算出されたカーボン・バジェット内に排出量を抑えるための2100年までの例示的なGHG排出経路も明らかにし、本研究でのレファレンス・シナリオである日本の現行の中長期温暖化対策数値目標の下での累積GHG排出量およびGHG排出経路(Nationally Committed Amount:NCA)と比較した。  その結果、努力分担方法として、1)一人当たり排出量の収斂(CPE)、2...
Working Paper
政府のエネルギー・環境会議が9月14日に決定した革新的エネルギー・環境戦略(以下「エネ環戦略」という)について、長期的な低炭素社会および資源循環型社会の実現の観点から政府試算の前提条件のうち3つの想定に関し再検討を行い、2030年における追加的な節エネ・温室効果ガス(GHG)排出削減の可能性について独自に検証した。その結果、一次エネルギー消費に関しては、「エネ環戦略」想定に比べ2.5%以上追加的に節約できることが示唆された。GHG排出に関しては、「エネ環戦略」において「2013 年から 2020 年まで1990年比で年間3.5 %分の森林吸収量の確保を目指す」とあることも考慮すると、国内努力のみで2030年に1990年比マイナス30%程度の排出削減は十分に合理性を持つことが示唆された。
Working Paper
There is a pressing need to build an effective framework for international cooperation on the atmospheric environment in order to solve the problem of transboundary air pollution, which has become apparent in recent years in East Asia. However, there are gaps among countries with regard to their opinions on transboundary air pollution and their...
