Governing the low-carbon energy transition in fossil fuel-dependent coastal regions

Governing the low-carbon energy transition in fossil fuel-dependent coastal regions

This project looked at transitions away from a fossil fuel-based economy in two regions in Japan – Iwaki in Fukushima Prefecture, and Tomakomai/Muroran in Hokkaido. Within this, the role of urban planning – and the potential for climate adaptation and mitigation-related activities in creating a managed transition for the regions – was evaluated.
