Adaptation to Climate Change
It has been pointed out that global climate change is likely to cause rising sea level and enlarged fluctuations of precipitation including more frequent heavy rainfall, more intensified tropical cyclones and severer droughts. To cope with these possible future changes, the River Bureau of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, Japan, is currently looking into how Japan should implement adaptation measures to climate change especially in the field of water-related disasters, such as floods, sediment-related disasters, storm surges and droughts.
