The resilience of nature and local community under climate change and population decreasing

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In recent years, I feel strongly that social circumstances surrounding ecology and civil engineering society are changing drastically. One of them is the appearance of the concept of green infrastructure. Green infrastructure is a concept of natural resources as an infrastructure which is a lower structure supporting society and furthermore the concept of utilizing the natural environment for sustainable maintenance or development of society and economy. For the society based on ecology and civil engineering, it can be said that it is a concept or approach with extremely high affinity. The initial goal of the establishment of the society was "coexistence of people and living things"" preservation of biodiversity"" sustainment of healthy ecosystems". The green infrastructure aims to "utilize the functions of ecosystems for management of the national land." Boldly speaking about green infrastructure is to shift from" conservation of ecosystem" to "conservation+utilization of ecosystem" and from "civil engineering" to "land management". When considering the development of ecology and civil engineering society, I feel that it is important to clearly position this new concept as a goal of the academic society.
