Scope In Japan, the impact of climate change has already become apparent and may become even more serious in the future. For example, there are the following specific damages; crop damage such as mandarin orange edema and white immature grains of rice, health hazards such as the northward distribution of Aedes albopictus and heat stroke patients, meteorological disasters such as increased torrential rain and increased number of strong typhoons, and coral bleaching Ecosystem. The climate change adaptation law, which was enacted in 2018, clarified the legal position of adaptation measures in Japan, and is a legal for the national, local governments, businesses and citizens to cooperate and cooperate to promote adaptation measures. Based on this law, the Climate Change Adaptation Information Platform (A-PLAT) was established to develop and provide tools to support information provision and adaptation actions, and to collect, organize and provide best practices. AP-PLAT and T -Overseas development such as -PLAT is also progressing. Overseas expansion such as AP-PLAT and T-PLAT are also progressing. In each research field, it is necessary to promote effective adaptation measures based on reliable and detailed information, and measures based on scientific knowledge of future impacts and strengthening of adaptation in the region are urgently needed. This proposed session would like to invite presentations on the latest achievements in interdisciplinary fields such as hydrology, agriculture, forestry, weather, and climate that support specific climate change adaptation measures, as well as on the development of new research.
