Climate Change Adaptation and Quality of Life（QoL）
Due to social changes such as population decline, low birthrate and aging population, and globalization, uncertainty for sustainable development is increasing. Climate change has synergy impacts; therefore, consideration of countermeasures is an urgent task for the future of society, businesses, individuals and families. The Climate Change Adaptation Law, which came into effect in 2018, requires each prefecture and municipalities to formulate a regional climate change adaptation plan. In the context of climate change, local governments need to protect the quality of life (QoL) of local residents. We should understand what is relatively important compared to other regions, and what factors are strongly influenced by climate change. It is necessary to take comprehensive measures to determine whether or not the current system is vulnerable. We evaluate the impact of climate change on QoL, including the impact on health and comfort, local industry, tourism, culture, etc., and also evaluate the effectiveness of various adaptation measures.
