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.
