Research Outline

With the prolonged world-wide recessions, efforts for reducing GHG emissions have slowed down even in developed countries. Concerns seem to have shifted to how we adjust our lives to the world with the influence of climate change. The shifts in policies will be studied for major player countries including the United States and Japan. A dynamic general equilibrium model will be applied to the data from the United States, Japan and Brazil to understand the impacts of climate change, observed as changes in temperature and precipitation. The simulation studies will be carried out to examine the effectiveness of alternative approaches to the preventive and adaptive measures. The issues related with the global governance on resource management and impacts of new global trade partnerships will be also studied. Research findings will be discussed during the USJI week events and published in professional journals.
