Abstract

Proposal of a policy for reducing CO% emissions by employing the landuse-transport- environment model in an urban area Y.Nishihori <% Y.Hirose ^, A.Kondo ^\ H.Kishimoto ^ & Y.Yamaguchi ^^ ^ Dept. of Ecosystem Engineering, The University ofTokushima, Japan ^ Dept. of Civil Engineering, The University of Tokushima, Japan Abstract In 1997, at COPS held in Kyoto, Japan, many countries in the world committed themselves to reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions. Due to the necessity for the reduction of greenhouse gases, the Japanese government has requested that concrete action plans be carried-out by local governments in Japan. However strategic objectives, along with schemes and action plans, have not yet been proposed by Japanese local governments. In this study, a comprehensive system of Landuse-Transport-Environment is proposed in order to estimate CO? emissions of present and future situations using the landuse model and transport network analysis.
