Thesis title: Development of Japanese multi-regional economic-social-environmental modelling framework, and its application: supply chain impact assessments of industrial activities and land use change on agricultural production and the ecosystem

Supervisors: Arne GESCHKE , Manfred LENZEN

Thesis abstract:

My research is to examine the effects of industrial and land use activities on agricultural production and the ecosystem, with the ultimate goal of sustainable agricultural production and ecosystem management. The research consists of two phases. In the first phase, a flexible and highly detailed economic-environmental modelling framework is developed for Japan. To this end, I develop a detailed collaborative research platform that provides multi-regional input-output-based analytical and decision tools for Japan, called “the Japan Industrial Ecology Laboratory (IELab)”. The Japan IELab facilitates the capability of integrated analysis of life cycle assessment, carbon footprint, agricultural footprint, water footprint, ecological footprint and other approaches for environmental impact assessments. Then, using the Japan IELab, impacts of land use change by economic activities on agricultural production and the ecosystems are assessed. During the second phase, the Japan IELab is linked with the existing the global multi-regional input output database (Global IELab). By linking with the global multi-regional input output modelling framework, the Japan IELab will enable researchers, policymakers and business to analyse economic, environmental and social implications in global supply chains across countries, as well as within a country.
