Current and Past Project
  • In order to construct a sustainable society by an integrated approach involving mitigation and adaptation, how effectively and efficiently climate change issues can be solved with a delicate balance between mitigation and adaptation under limited economic and human resources will be assessed quantitatively, and it will be utilized to support climate change policy developments as risk management.
    The following five themes have been set.
  • The aim of this research project is to contribute to international discussions toward the establishment of sustainable development goals (SDGs) in the short term, and to propose policies and frameworks for a long-term transformation in human behaviour toward sustainable society.
  • This project aims to provide vision of sustainable development based on economic approach while focusing on recovery of large-scale natural disaster such as the Great East Japan Earthquake. In order to build new theory of suitability, it is crucial to consider factors such as decreasing population through aging society, external shocks such as natural disasters that threaten societal stability as well as sustainable growth. Moreover, we plan to analyze the effect of external shocks at multiple levels: across regions, countries, and localities within countries through collections of relevant data, we are able to further develop exiting ideas regarding sustainable growth and provide pragmatic policy recommendations.

    arrow_red Previous economic researches of sustainable development assumed increasing population and economic growth focusing on developing countries. Our research reverses such trend by considering sustainable development of developed society with decreasing and aging population. Detailed study of Japan and comparison with other countries would lead to construction of suitable development model that can be applied when eventually societal maturity diffuses globally.

The association of air pollution with multiple adverse health outcomes is becoming well established, but its negative economic impact is less well appreciated. It is important to elucidate this impact for the states of India.
We estimated exposure to ambient particulate matter pollution, household air pollution, and ambient ozone pollution, and their attributable deaths and disability-adjusted life-years in every state of India as part of the Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD) 2019. We estimated the economic impact of air pollution as the cost of lost output due to premature deaths and morbidity attributable to air pollution for every state of India, using the cost-of-illness method.
1·67 million (95% uncertainty interval 1·42–1·92) deaths were attributable to air pollution in India in 2019, accounting for 17·8% (15·8–19·5) of the total deaths in the country. The majority of these deaths were from ambient particulate matter pollution (0·98 million [0·77–1·19]) and household air pollution (0·61 million [0·39–0·86]). The death rate due to household air pollution decreased by 64·2% (52·2–74·2) from 1990 to 2019, while that due to ambient particulate matter pollution increased by 115·3% (28·3–344·4) and that due to ambient ozone pollution increased by 139·2% (96·5–195·8). Lost output from premature deaths and morbidity attributable to air pollution accounted for economic losses of US$28·8 billion (21·4–37·4) and $8·0 billion (5·9–10·3), respectively, in India in 2019. This total loss of $36·8 billion (27·4–47·7) was 1·36% of India's gross domestic product (GDP). The economic loss as a proportion of the state GDP varied 3·2 times between the states, ranging from 0·67% (0·47–0·91) to 2·15% (1·60–2·77), and was highest in the low per-capita GDP states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh. Delhi had the highest per-capita economic loss due to air pollution, followed by Haryana in 2019, with 5·4 times variation across all states.
The high burden of death and disease due to air pollution and its associated substantial adverse economic impact from loss of output could impede India's aspiration to be a $5 trillion economy by 2024. Successful reduction of air pollution in India through state-specific strategies would lead to substantial benefits for both the health of the population and the economy..
