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
