    Summary:[概要] フェアトレードに対する認識は拡大しているといわれている. 日本の認知率を調査するために, 11の都市と全国を対象にして, 合計2,000サンプル以上に対して, アンケート調査を実施した. このうち, 筆者は福岡市と熊本市の調査を担当した. なお, 熊本市は, 2011年よりフェアトレードタウンに認定されている. 調査の結果, 熊本市は全国データに近い傾向が観察されたが, 福岡市は, 全国と異なる傾向が見られた. 認知率は, 熊本市が福岡市よりも12.6%高い結果となった. [Abstract] The recognition rate of fairtrade is said to be growing. We implemented an online survey to estimate the recognition rate in 11 cities in Japan. This report shows the result for Fukuoka city and Kumamoto city. Kumamoto city has been authorized as a fair trade town for 5 years. The recognition rate in Kumamoto city is higher than in Fukuoka city by 12.6%.

  • The Economic Effects of Paper Tube Recycling, 坂田 裕輔, かやのもり : 近畿大学産業理工学部研究報告 : reports of School of Humanity-Oriented Science and Engineering, Kinki University, かやのもり : 近畿大学産業理工学部研究報告 : reports of School of Humanity-Oriented Science and Engineering, Kinki University, (20), 15 - 20, 2014
    Summary:[Abstract] The recycling rate of paper tube is estimated to be about 36 % while the recycling rate of used paper is almost 68 %. The low recycling rate is caused by 2 reasons in Japanese market. (1) Paper tube is hard to resolve in the recycling process. (2) There is no collection route for paper tube to recycle. In this paper, we revealed the material flow of paper tube and estimated the economic effect of paper tube recycling. For recycling scenario, we assume that `green paper tube' , which dissolves as easy as usual corrugated cardboard, is generally accepted. The estimation result showed that the effect was 2,412 million yen compared to no recycling scenario. It is difficult to identify whether the tube is `green' or not. Thus, it is necessary to introduce labeling system to show easiness of recycling.
  • The economic impact of paper tube recycling, SAKATA Yusuke, Proceedings of the Annual Conference of Japan Society of Material Cycles and Waste Management, 廃棄物資源循環学会研究発表会講演集, 23(0), 2012
    Summary:We estimated the economic impact to paper tube recycling.  Almost half of paper tubes were disposed and burned in Japan.  Our material flow survey revealed that 320 thousand ton of paper tube was produced in Japan and 180 thousand ton was burned.  Paper tube wastes were produced from limited source.
    The estimation result showed that the paper tube industry would have 1.25 billion yen of economic benefit with the 'green' paper tube technology.
  • A cost benefit analysis for the southward extension plan of Osaka Monorail Loop-line, 瀋 俊毅, 坂田 裕輔, 橋本 介三, Hiroshima journal of international studies, 広島国際研究, 16, 55 - 65, 2010
    Summary:In this paper, under the consideration of both local environmental status and transportation network, we13;implement Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) for the southward extension plan of Osaka Monorail Loop-line13;by applying a Choice Experiment (CE) method. It is estimated that the benefit cost (B/C) ratio is 1.35 under a13;basic scenario. In addition, with a consideration of different kinds of uncertainty in the future, a number13;of sensitivity analyses are implemented. The results of sensitivity analysis indicate that the possibility of13;generating net benefit is extremely high for the extension plan studied here.

Tosepan sells coffee and allspices with organic and fairtrade certification around the world. It also builds microfinance systems in their region. This paper evaluates their sustainability of their production and the services produced by their natural capital.

  • Estimation of the Number of Tourists and the Characteristics of Tourism Demand on Yakushima Island : A Better Method of Estimating Tourism Statistics in the Case of Remote Islands, 柴崎 茂光, 坂田 裕輔, 永田 信, Bulletin of the Tokyo University Forests, 東京大学農学部演習林報告, (110), 1 - 25, Dec. 2003
    Summary:観光統計(入込観光客数や観光需要特性など)は以前から公表されているが,統計としての精度は疑問視されている。本研究では,鹿児島県屋久島を対象として現在公表されている観光統計よりも精度の高い推計値を導き出すことを目的とした。具体的には,入込地点である屋久島空港,宮之浦港,安房港の3カ所において,季節変動の影響を考慮して2001年11月から2002年8月にかけて計4回のアンケート調査を実施した。この際,一定の抽出率を保つために搭乗者の5-6分の1を抽出するように工夫し,合計3,591名分の有効回答数を得た。分析の結果,屋久島を来訪する観光客数は年間20万人前後であることが推計され,鹿児島県熊毛支庁が公表している数値は過小評価されていることがわかった。また屋久島の観光需要には季節変動が見られ,春期から夏期にかけては個人客が中心であるのに対して,それ以外の時期は団体客が主体となっていた。またパック旅行客の割合が増えていることも判明し,屋久島が大衆観光地化しつつあることがわかった。さらにエコツアー・登山ガイド業も1997-2002年の間に急激に利用客数を伸ばしており,屋久島の観光業は盛隆期を迎えていたことが推察された。ただし,山岳地域・世界遺産登録地域への訪問者増加によって,繁忙期にはオーバーユースの可能性があり,環境資産の劣化が憂慮された。In Japan, official statistics on the number of tourists and characteristics of tourism demand are published, but the reliability of these statistics is said to be questionable. This paper aims to find a better way of estimating the number of tourists and characteristics of tourism demand by applying a method of sampling at a certain rate. Using such a method, a questionnaire survey was conducted to estimate tourism statistics on Yakushima Island, a part of which was included in the World Heritage List in 1993. The survey consisted of 4 five-day investigations at the ports of entry during November 2001 and August 2002, drawing a sample at a give rate. The overall sample size was 3,591. The percentage of visitors who were tourists was estimated to be between 65-69%, so the number of tourists to Yakushima Island should be around 200 thousand a year. The Kagoshima prefectural office has estimated that the percentage of visitors who were tourists should be 59-60%; therefore, it is clear that Kagoshima prefectural office underestimated the number of tourists to Yakushima Island. Also it should be noted that there was a seasonal fluctuation in tourism demand. During the off-season, most tourists joined package tours that travel agencies had planned, while most tourists in the peak season did not. Furthermore, the number of tourists who participated in ecotourism has been dramatically rising during these five years. Although an increasing number of tourists contributes to the development of the local economy, there is a possibility that overuse of mountainous areas may cause depletion of environmental assets in the near future.

    Summary:The number of tourists coming to the Yaku Islands had increased rapidly since 1993 when it was designated as World Natural Heritage site. Most tourists are interested only in its natural resources while it has rich cultural resources and attractive people.
    In this paper, the potential of a new tourism style which enphasis on staying longer and the experiences in Yaku-Island have been observed. In Yaku Island, the field research is held in Haruo area which is the south east side of the island.
    The Haruo area is proved to have plenty of regional resources that can provide various experiences such as farm staying and envrionmental studies.
    To encourage Eco-tourism in Haruo area, the potential of using LETS system (Local Exchange and Transfer System) are examined. It has shown that some new trades between local people and tourists such as teaching local culture and local foods would stimulate local economies.

    Summary:I have considered the potential of the LETS system to urban regeneration in this paper. Though there are some examples of LETS and other point card systems used in urban malls, but they does not contribute for the long-term development. Current systems are not intended to do so, but to activate un-used resources of the region. In this paper, I propose the 2^nd and 3^rd generation LETS system to develop urban malls in long term which includes 投資 functions.

    Summary:ごみの有料化と並んでごみの分別も進んでいる。市町村の施策にそった分別が正しく行われるかどうかは住民のモラルにかかっているが、行政と住民の間で調整的な役割を果たすのは、任意団体としての自治会(町内会)である。 中核市を対象としたアンケート調査結果等から、ごみの収集はステーション方式が多いがその管理は自治会に任されていること、自治会に加入していない者のごみについても同様であるが行政から特に経済的支援がないことなどが明らかとなった。 自治会加入率の低下や役員人材不足が懸念される中、何らかの支援が必要ではないかと考える。
  • Research on influencing factor and improvement strategy of municipal waste management, Kamita Kenji, Shirai Nobuo, Sakata Yuusuke, Proceedings of the Annual Conference of The Japan Society of Waste Management Experts,   2008
    Summary: 循環型社会構築のため、一般廃棄物の「3R推進」が求められており、発生抑制などには住民の協力が不可欠であるが、切り札と呼べる施策がなく、多くの市町村が対応に苦慮している。こうしたことを踏まえ、本研究では、最終的には市町村のごみ処理状況の改善方策を提示することを目的として、環境省がまとめたガイドラインを参考に、類似市町村のグルーピング(人口と産業構造)と重回帰分析の組合せにより、市町村の各種属性データがごみ処理状況に与える要因分析を行った。その結果、市町村グループごとにごみ処理状況が影響を受ける要因が異なることが確認された。このことは、人口や産業構造によって最適な改善施策が異なってくることを示唆しており、今後の詳細分析により、具体的な改善方策の提示に至ることが期待される。ただし、今回の解析の対象とした平成17年度は、全国的に多数の市町村合併が進められており、その攪乱の影響が懸念される。
