“Just Transition” is an important, brand new concept to implement policies towards decarbonisation of the power sector (DPS) in Japan. However, a knowledge gap still remains between this concept and policy discussion at a practical level. Therefore, using the existing DPS scenarios and employment factors for the power sector based on extended input...

The Ganges basin provides essential water for drinking, irrigation, industrial use and power generation. Global climate change will affect the water availability in the basin and inevitably intensify the competition for water among major users, particularly from thermal power generation. Knowledge on the spatial distribution of water supply-demand...
