Building Holistic Resilience: Tokyo’s 2050 Strategy

Andrew DeWit, Riyanti Djalante, Rajib Shaw

Abstract:
The paper examines Japan’s capital 
city of Tokyo’s “Zero Emission Tokyo Strategy.”
Our work shows that Tokyo’s strategy is particularly important in light of the 2030
Agenda’s emphasis on greenhouse-gas emissions reduction, equitable sustainability,
and building holistic resilience against all hazards. The data indicate that Tokyo’s
ambitions are built on a track record of global leadership in resource efficient water systems,
transit networks, and other critical infrastructure. Moreover, Tokyo is part of
Japan’s zero-emission communities, smart cities, all-hazard resilience, and other
multilevel and silo-breaking collaborative platforms. Our analysis also makes
recommendations for bolstering Tokyo’s strategy, to enhance co-benefits from
integrating climate change mitigation and adaptation, in addition to strengthening
pandemic response.
