About this book

This book analyses the similar challenges faced by Japan and Germany in regard to environmentally sustainable and resilient urban development under conditions of social and natural change; it does this with reference to Habitat III and the New Urban Agenda and thereby makes a valuable contribution to makes reference to Habitat III and the New Urban Agenda. As mature economies and ageing societies, Japan and Germany share a number of similar challenges for environmentally sustainable and resilient urban development under conditions of social and natural change. Furthermore, both countries have vast experience in actively promoting urban transformation. At the same time the authors are making a contribution towards implementing the New Urban Agenda. Other countries may build up on the experience provided and the 20 examples described in this book. The work is based on a longstanding cooperation between the Graduate School of Environmental Studies of the Nagoya University (Japan), the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (Germany) and the Technische Universität Dresden (Germany).

About the authors

Hiroyuki Shimizu is an emeritus professor of Nagoya University. He studied architecture at the Faculty of Engineering of the University Tokyo and received the doctoral degree of Engineering ibidem. During his studies at the University Tokyo he obtained a fellowship of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) to study for two years at the University of Hanover, Germany.

From January 1986 to August 1989, he taught architectural planning at the Faculty of Engineering of Chiba Institute of Technology as an instructor and associate professor. In September 1989, he moved to School of Engineering of Nagoya University as an associate professor, and became a professor in January 1996. In this period, he has developed his research fields not only in architectural planning but also in urban planning. In April 2001, he moved to the Graduate School of Environmental Studies due to university reorganization. This graduate school is a new integrated organization combining the

inter-disciplinary academic fields of social sciences, engineering and natural sciences. Furthermore, it aims to solve both, global and local environmental issues from scratch. According to this academic policy, he expanded his new research field to landscape planning and management. The results of his studies are published internationally for instance in the following books:

Hiroyuki Shimizu, Akito Murayama (Eds.), Basic and Clinical Environmental Approaches in Landscape Planning, Springer, 2014

Hiroyuki Shimizu, Chika Takatori, Nobuko Kawaguchi (Eds.), Labor forces and Landscape Management -Japanese Case Studies, Springer, 2016

Especially in the latter book, he proposed a new concept of “landscape management labor accounts”, which is useful calculate labor forces needed for the appropriate maintenance of an ecological landscape.
