泥炭地管理国際会議 : 熱帯および冷温帯泥炭地管理の在り方とその未来像 人と自然の調和とその持続性(International Workshop on Peatland Management: Future Aspect of Management in Tropical and Cool Temperate Peatlands ― Harmonious and Sustainable Relationship with Nature)

主催:北海道大学 サステイナビリティ学教育研究センター

Organizer : Center for Sustainability Science (CENSUS), Hokkaido University

現在、世界の泥炭地は主に冷温帯地域と熱帯地域に分布しており、その中に含まれる炭素量は530Gtと言われています。泥炭地は大気中の炭素を固定し泥炭中に蓄えることで成立してきました。しかし、その炭素固定と集積の機能は泥炭地そのもの、あるいは周辺地域における様々な人間活動により急激に失われ、逆に巨大な炭素放出源になりつつあります。特に熱帯泥炭地域における土地改変と泥炭火災による大気中への炭素放出は日本の年間炭素総排出量に匹敵することも明らかとなってきました。 本会議では、最新の科学技術の活用と、泥炭地とその周辺地域における人間活動の仕組み作りを 紹介し、持続可能な低炭素社会実現について、国際的に活躍する研究者とともに議論します。また、泥炭および泥炭地の保全・利用・管理に関わる日本の研究者・技術者の交流・連携の場として「日本泥炭地学会」設立に向けた意見の集約も行っていきます。

Found mostly in cool-temperate and tropical regions, peatlands are sustained by a process in which carbon is fixed from the atmosphere and stored in peaty ground. However, these fixation and storage functions are being rapidly lost due to local human activity and other factors, and peatlands are consequently becoming gigantic carbon emission sources rather than sinks. This workshop will highlight the latest related scientific and technological advances and efforts to establish a regulatory mechanism for human activity in and around peatlands. Ways to create a sustainable low-carbon society will also be discussed.
