途上国の森林減少・劣化に由来する温室効果ガス排出の削減等(以下「REDD+」という。)は重要な気候変動対策であり、気候変動に関する国際連合枠組条約の第21回締約国会議(COP21)で合意された「パリ協定」にもその実施と支援を奨励することが明記されたところである。 REDD+の推進には、途上国に対する資金と技術の提供が必要とされているが、公的資金には限界があることから、今後、REDD+の取組みを拡大していくには、民間セクターからの資金や技術の提供が鍵となる。しかしながら、民間セクターがREDD+に対して投資するには、排出削減クレジットが獲得できる等のインセンティブが必要(①)とされる。また、途上国がREDD+を実施するには、COP決定を踏まえつつ、各々の国情に応じた排出削減量の算定...

In Enhanced governance approaches for mitigation and adaptation to climate change – An Asia Focus
It has been widely regarded that policies and institutions that are adaptive in nature can deal with climate change adaptation. However, verifying the veracity of this hypothesis is difficult due to the absence of long experience in climate change adaptation in most countries. This chapter is based on reviews and questionnaire survey on evolution...

To fill this gap, this study aims to seek how far a developed country is responding to climate change by considering Japanese agriculture initiatives. The...
