Abstract

  Water availability and the environment are closely related to the spatial characteristics of the regional and urban economy. The objective of this study was to quantitatively evaluate the environmental impacts of economic activities in the Mikawa Bay watershed and surrounding regions that flow into the Mikawa Bay, and discuss the sustainable industrial compositions in the depopulating society from both environmental and economic points of view. We estimated an inter-regional input-output table for Aichi Prefecture, and analyzed the relationships between each city, town and the environmental impacts on Mikawa Bay based on the economic trade relationships between cities and towns using input-output and optimization models.
