The main objective of the scenario building is to
explore the implications of future uncertainties (1. population distribution and 2. reliance/wise use of domestic natural capital) on land-use and ecosystem services of Japan up-to 2050. Four scenarios were developed through the scenario-axes technique and then were quantified with a set of various models.
This case provides a new approach to collectively develop nationalscale future scenarios for the purpose of exploring potential changes in natural capital and ecosystem services and human well-being up to 2050 using key direct and indirect drivers
The scenarios were made in: 2018
The scenarios look out to: 2050
