  • Conservation payments, off-farm employment and household welfare for farmers participating in the "Grain for Green" program in China Empirical evidence from the Loess Plateau

    Li, Li, Tsunekawa, Atsushi, MacLachlan, Ian, Li, Guicai, Koike, Atsushi, Guo, Yuanyuan

    Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine the factors (including conservation payments) that influence household decisions to participate in off-farm work and estimate the impact of participation on household welfare under the auspices of the Grain for Green (GfG) program. Design/methodology/approach The authors used survey data from 225 farm households on the Loess Plateau and addressed the possible sample selection and endogeneity problems by employing a jointly estimated endogenous switching regression (ESR) model. Findings The findings of this paper are as follows: off-farm participation is positively related to households' educational attainment and negatively related to their land resource endowment and the presence of children; participation in off-farm work exerts positive effects on household income and per capita household income, but negative effects on farm productivity; and conservation payments show no significant impact on off-farm participation, no significant impact on any of the three household welfare indicators for off-farm non-participant households, but a significantly negative impact for off-farm participant households. Originality/value This paper makes two contributions. First, the authors address the selection bias and endogeneity problem of GfG participating households by employing the ESR method and explicitly estimating the treatment effects of off-farm participation on their household welfare. Neglecting these problems leads to biased estimates and misleading policy implications. Second, this analysis stresses the important role of government in reducing market or institutional failure and other barriers that impede farmers' efficient allocation choices instead of compensating households for conserving sloping land, shedding new light on the most effective policy options to achieve the program's goals.

  • Study on the substantiation of location equilibrium in the CUE model

    Yamamoto, Hiromichi, Koike, Atsushi, Seya, Hajime

    In the Computable Urban Economic (CUE) Model, one land-use transport interaction (LUTI) model, improving the accuracy of the Location Choice Model is important to evaluate the effects of introducing urban transportation policies. However, our previous study revealed that the substantiation of the indirect utility function by a linear expenditure system has not been verified and that location choice behaviors estimated using the logit model depends on the adjustment factor. Therefore, in this study, we first examined the logical meaning of the utility function by a linear expenditure system, and then focused on identifying major constituent factors of the adjustment factor and statistically verified the adjustment factor and urban amenities. As a result, we have identified the following facts: that the conventional indirect utility function may underestimate the effect of introducing urban transportation policies; that if effects are estimated using WLS after adding housing supply factors to the indirect utility function, the estimation accuracy will be improved; and that the major constituent factors of the adjustment factor are those expressing local characteristics of cities and wards.

  • Regional Financial CGE Model for Infrastructure Investment Policy

    Koike, Atsushi, Segawa, Naoki

    In this paper, regional financial computable general equilibrium (RFCGE) model was developed. The RFCGE model is a useful tool in the evaluation of regional fiscal policies. So far, computable general equilibrium (CGE) models have often been used to evaluate regional infrastructure investment policies. However, conventional CGE models do not consider financial assets, such as deposits, equities, and government bonds and decision- making mechanism of government. Therefore, applying CGE models might overestimate the benefit incidence of policies on the rural society. To confirm this theory, the RFCGE model was applied to regional infrastructure investment policy.

  • Efficiency and its determinant factors for smallholder farms in the Grain for Green Program on the Loess Plateau, China

    Li, Li, Tsunekawa, Atsushi, Tsubo, Mitsuru, Koike, Atsushi, Wang, Jijun

    A nonparametric frontier approach, data envelopment analysis, was used to calculate technical, pure technical, cost, allocative and scale efficiencies of 112 farms participating in the Grain for Green Program on the Loess Plateau in China. The results indicate substantial cost inefficiencies. The main source of cost inefficiency was allocative inefficiency although considerable technical inefficiency also exists. Technical inefficiency resulted slightly more from scale inefficiency than from pure technical inefficiency. Scale inefficiency was mostly due to the suboptimal scale of farms. Regression analysis of explanatory variables against technical efficiency, allocative efficiency and scale efficiency suggested that LG_Agri (indicator for farm size) was the only variable that was significantly related to all three efficiency indices. Other significant variables include Remittance Ratio (indicator for rural-urban migration), Tenancy Ratio (indicator for land tenancy) and Simpson Index (indicator for land fragmentation). Our findings prompt policy suggestions that would facilitate labor mobility, provide more secure land tenure and increase land consolidation, while avoiding further withdrawal of cultivated land unless explicit measures to alleviate the potential impact on production efficiency are followed.

  • Assessing total factor productivity and efficiency change for farms participating in Grain for Green program in China: A case study from Ansai, Loess Plateau

    Li, Li, Tsunekawa, Atsushi, Tsubo, Mitsuru, Koike, Atsushi, Wang, Jijun

    In 1999, the Grain for Green program (also known as Sloping Land Conversion program), one of the world's largest land-conservation programs, was launched in China. It emphasizes both eco-environment rehabilitation and poverty alleviation, with the ultimate goal of sustainable development. Total Factor Productivity (TFP) has important implications for conservation of the environment, enhancement of wellbeing, food self-sufficiency, and the sustainability of the program. Using data from the year before and the ending year of the first phase, we did a case study in the Zhifanggou watershed on China's Loess Plateau. We used a Data-Envelopment-Analysis based on Malmquist TFP index approach to find out the changes of TFP, the sources of TFP growth, and the determinant factors at a farm level. We found that 1) TFP has been greatly improved after the implementation of the program and 2) the sole source of TFP growth is technological growth. In contrast, the technical efficiency of farms under the improved technology has decreased; 3) farms with an unfavorable initial state benefited more after the introduction of the program; and 4) land terracing and access to credit contributed significantly to TFP growth and technological growth. Land terracing is positively related to technical efficiency change, too. Extension services are positively related to technological growth, while age is negatively related to technical efficiency change. We therefore suggest a focus on terracing slopes, improving access to credit and extension services.

It clearly shows that new manufacturing factory locates in the area where the alternative route to major cities is developed. ”Redundancy Effects” in this study means that shortening of transportation time of the alternative route to major cities promotes manufacturing factory location. The purpose of this study is to estimate this effect by using fixed effect model. As a result of estimation, redundancy effects were observed in some areas. Many of these areas are far from the urban area.

  • Study on the introduction of concept 'commons' in sustainable regional design method

    TSUKIHASHI Osamu

    Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Challenging Exploratory Research, 01 Apr. 2014 31 Mar. 2018, We have introduced the commons concept, which has been actively studied in the fields of environmental studies, economics, etc., to practical planning of architecture. And since we have been working as a researcher in Otsuchi Town, Iwate prefecture, based on the collection of memory testimony by model WS which is continuing support activities in Project Otsuchi Media Commons (MLA), we aimed to construct a commons regeneration model in the disaster area. We revised our research method due to the fact that it took time to compile the massive testimony gathered as practical data and of the town changed the policy the reconstruction project and delayed plan. We made a digital archive of model workshops and testimonies made experimentally in other areas and modeled how to utilize them.

  • STUDY ON EFFECTS OF CONSUMER BEHAVIOR ON REGIONAL ECONOMY

    MIYAKAWA AYU, FUJII Satoshi, KOIKE Atsushi

    Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Young Scientists (B), 01 Apr. 2015 31 Mar. 2017, Although it is important to understand the influence of consumer behavior on regional economy, as far as we know, no empirical research has been conducted in Japan. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to verify the economic impact of consumer’s behavior on regional economy. We investigated two local merchants and four chain stores in Kyoto-city in order to compare the local economic return of consumption. As a result it was shown that if some shopping is done at local merchant, approximately 52% of consumption revenue will return to local economy, however if some shopping is done at chain store, the return rate will become about its half. This result suggests us about a desirable consumer behavior for regional vitalization.

  • Consistency, complementarity and integration systems between trade-flow and transport-flow data

    KOIKE ATSUSHI, Tavasszy Lori. A., Davydenko Igor. Y.

    Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Challenging Exploratory Research, 01 Apr. 2015 31 Mar. 2017, Spatial economic analysis requires an inter-regional trade data as monetary term like Input-Output table. Although the empirical policy study requires the analysis on subdivided area, however, we only have the Input-Output table on the 9 regional data in Japan. Therefore, this research shows the characteristic comparison between statistical data on inter-regional trade/freight data and inter-enterprise data by using simple statistical methods. As a conclusion, we show the inter-regional freight census data by MLIT and inter-enterprise data by TDB is effective index to subdivide into small region. But inter-regional freight census data is only for the prefectural level, inter-enterprise data can be applied at municipality level although we have to solve some problem to apply the model. Also, we make a model to estimate Gross transport data from Net transport data. It will be help us to estimate some inter-regional trade flow on subdivided are.

    YAMAZAKI JUICHI, SUN Yuping, FUJITANI Hideo, AKUTAGAWA Shinichi, IRYO Takamasa, KOIKE Atsushi, KITA Hideyuki

    Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Challenging Exploratory Research, 01 Apr. 2014 31 Mar. 2016, This study aims to consider the redefinition and a new concept of next-generation infrastructure that becomes the foundation of life and national land. Interdisciplinary exchanges in the Kobe University and network formation of collaborative research in Japan and overseas have been promoted. Environmental vision of the next generation and social strategy that leads to it has been set as a common theme. Toward the research goals for the construction of sustainable environmental design studies, to promote the following four points; (1) new social infrastructure issues that appeared on the earthquake reconstruction, (2) evaluation of smart infrastructure using big data, (3) the next generation fusion research project of the resilient architecture and civil engineering structure, and construction of an international network, (4) visualization of infrastructure development, the research network development was promoted through collaboration with the private sector and the public agencies.

  • ANALYSIS OF RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SOCIAL MEDIA INFORMATION AND RETURNING HOME IN DISASTERS

    KOIKE ATSUSHI, IRYO Takamasa, MURATA Masaki, KUWANO Masashi, OTAZAWA Toshimori

    Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (B), 01 Apr. 2012 31 Mar. 2015, The aim of this study is to clarify the relationship between social media information and returning home behavior in disaster. In order to analyze Twitter’s textual data, which is tweeted in the Great East Japan Earthquake on 11 March, 2011, this study applies text-mining approach. The results of text-mining confirm the trend of collocation’s network among terms after the Earthquake happened, and the distribution of term co-occurrence frequency. On the other hand, using the returning home data sets on 11 March, 2011 collected, this study calculate the differences of estimated population between one point and the former point. Moreover, using the two data sets, this study analyzed the relationship between both using a canonical correlation analysis. Term co-occurrence frequency in Social Media and behavior of returning home is applied to two sets of variables in canonical analysis, and the estimation results demonstrated that these two are significantly interdependent.

    Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (C), 2009 2011, This research focuses on the cooperative provision of inter-regional transport infrastructure by multiple local governments. A theoretical model is developed by employing general equilibrium modeling and non-cooperative game theory. With the model, strategic behaviors and therefore their consequent results such as a provision level of infrastructure are investigated. It is especially shown that decision timing and substitution/compliment characteristics of investment function play key roles.

  • the applications of Rural Area Social Accounting Matrix in consideration of time resources

    KOIKE Atsushi, TANIMOTO Keishi

    Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (C), 2009 2011, The aim of this research is to construct a base economic data in order to analyze social issues on rural areas. Traditional economic data is not enough to analyze these regions, because of resource on these regions is not only labor and capital but also time and social capitals. So, we proposed Rural Area Social Accounting Matrix in consideration of time resources and its applications. Use this data, we can find somefuture social issues from the numerical simulations.

  • Management and evaluation methodologies for public environmental works in small municipalities encountering opulation decrease

    HOSOI Yoshihiko, TANIMOTO Keishi, MASUDA Takanori, KOIKE Atsushi

    Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (C), 2008 2010, Methodologies of sustainable management for public environmental works in small municipalities suffering population decrease and budget deficit. Measures for them were evaluated from both sides of local government and citizens. nvironmental public works like sewerage are often financial burden of small municipalities. Therefore, measures to manage environmental public works with holistic view of municipal policies were developed. At the same time, their effects on residents' utility and fairness were evaluated.

  • Environmental planning and maintenance methodology in small municipalities encountering depopulation and aging

    HOSOI Yoshihiko, MASUDA Takanori, KITA Hideyuki, KOIKE Atsushi, TANIMOTO Keishi

    Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (C), 2005 2006, Japan is encountering population decrease and aging and has debt of 770 trillion. Local governments are in difficult situation due to the increase in people who need social welfare and budget deficit. Especially it is remarkable in small municipalities. Water supply, domestic waste water treatment and waste treatment are important jobs for a local government. These systems have been planned with the assumption of population increase until now. However we have to change our minds for depopulating age. In this research, new planning methodologies for depopulating age were examined. The overview about situation of small municipalities concerning population decrease and aging were shown and the subjects about planning and maintenance were indicated. Next, various methods to solve problems of environmental facilities due to depopulation and aging were examined. In facility developments, the choice method between concentrated system and diffused system was discussed. In maintenance method, planning about patrolling of diffused facilities and promotion method to use sewerage system were examined. The effects of sewerage system development method on municipality finance and local economy were examined. On the basis of the above practical studies, general methodologies were studied. The importance of satisfaction of each local governmental service from viewpoints of various age people and people's subconscious needs were emphasized. The methodology to consider spillover effect of projects was presented. The GIS technology for environmental control was examined.

  • Toward Sustainable Improvement in Quality of Life : Theoretical and Statistical Analysis on Policy Assessments

    SHIMOMURA Ken-ichi, SHIRAHATA Shingo, FUKUSHIGE Mototsugu, YAMAJI Hidetoshi, HASHIMOTO Yoshizo, KOIKE Atsushi

    Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (A), 2004 2006, We conducted both theoretical and empirical analyses of policy assessments focusing on actual performances of economic policies. The analytical methods are economic theory, statistics, econometrics, and experimental economics. We regularly had meetings to check the processes and the results of works in progress, and finally published outputs of the researches. We form two research groups. One is a team to study environment, traffics and policy assessment, the members of which reviewed literatures of Japan and other countries about environmental and traffic problems such as garbage, industrial wastes, air pollutions, natural environment of sightseeing spots, and public transportation facilities. This group examined what kind of analytical methods and evaluation methods are suitable for these problems. Some of them carried out field surveys and hearing about the slow life and the recycling activities in the environmental policies of Italy. In addition, other members conducted cost-benefit analysis on the extension plan of the Osaka monorail, which is called "Saito project," with the choice experiment method. The other group specialized in the research of local public finance and the urban policy. They collected and analyzed data of sustainable growth of economies of remote islands and information disclosure problems of local governments. In particular, they employed questionnaire surveys to those who concern tourism of Amami Oshima Island and those who suffered from the Chuetsu earthquake. Some members also studied a tendency of convergence of income per capita based on data of the metropolitan area of Japan with Markov matrices. In the experimental economic analysis, other members showed that decentralized market mechanisms may not work out for unstable equilibria of perfect competition, or any types of equilibria of monopolistic competition. In the dynamic spatial general equilibrium analysis incorporated economies of scale, other members analyzed the influence of the traffic jam in the city part of the Netherlands from an aspect of the social economy and a living standard aspect, and investigated what influene congestions have on what type of industries.

  • The Construction of Input-Output Table at Urban Area Level and Computable General Equilibrium Model for Urban Area

    ISHIKAWA Yoshifumi, UEDA Takayuki, KOIKE Atsushi

    Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (C), 2002 2003, In this study, we developed an estimation method for Input-Output table at urban level and the CGE model for urban area in the context of open economy assumption. We first developed a method in order to construct input-output table at the urban area level using non-survey technique. When input-output tables are constructed, Estimation of interregional trade coefficients is important. In this study, we proposed a method for estimation of interregional trade using simple location quotient. And also, This research constructed a three-region interregional input-output model by dividing the whole country into three regions with the concept of hierarchical structure. In addition, we constructed a computable general equilibrium model in order to evaluate urban policy. Then, based on several case studies, we have shown that it is possible to conduct policy evaluation, using this model.
