The land ministry plans to draft a multilateral framework that could help developing nations in Asia make better use of their land through careful planning, government sources said.
The sources said the ministry will propose the framework at the U.N. Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III) in Quito, Ecuador, in October.

CIVIL SOCIETY organisations (CSOs) and local residents living near the Dawei Special Economic Zone (SEZ) have called for action from the Japanese, Myanmar and Thai governments to tackle human rights violations before allowing the project to resume.
Background and Objectives
Multiple funds and finance mechanisms have contributed in promoting forest-related activities in developing countries. Designing an effective finance scheme is one of the key elements to enhance effective and efficient forest conservation and sustainable forest management in developing countries.
Most anthropogenic activities impacted on water quality and quantity, and further impacted on ecosystem services (ESs) in watershed are related to land use and climate changes those may cause losses of ecosystem functions. Effective information regarding ESs and their optimal priority conservation planning responded to land use and climate changes provide useful support for diverse stakeholders in ESs planning, management and policies.
QUESTIONS: How does small linear grassland elements (paddy levees and road verges) contribute to plant diversity patterns in sites with modern or traditional management? Which factors determine small‐scale plant species richness of small linear grassland elements in a Japanese agricultural landscape? LOCATION: Shiga Prefecture, Japan. METHODS: Aerial photos from 1963, 1985, 1995 and 2008 were used to investigate landscape changes and to measure landscape structures within a typical agricultural landscape (~25 km²).
Quantitative assessment of the impacts of climate change on groundwater levels is important for sustainable groundwater use. This study examined the Tedori River alluvial fan in Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan, where paddy fields occupy 45 % of the total area. A regional groundwater flow model simulated future groundwater levels in response to 38 climate change projections generated for each of three GCMs, using three GHG emission scenarios with the ELPIS-JP datasets.
