Sustainable Living with Environmental Risks

by Nobuhiro Kaneko and Shinji Yoshiura

We are not free from environmental risks that accompany the development of human societies.

Environmental risks, therefore, are not only human health risks by pollution, climatic anomalies and natural disasters, but also degradation of ecosystem services on which most people are relying for their lives. We cannot entirely eliminate the risks, because it is not possible to attain zero impact on the environment, but we need to fin...
