This session will introduce several state-of-the-art research under S-18 research project from young researchers. Our research groups aim to evaluate the impact of climate change adaptation and mitigationon on buildings and infrastructures. We analyze the dynamics of material stock and flow of buildings and infrastructures in Japan and examine the influence of different climate change scenarios on the future urban built environment. From a multifaceted perspective of material metabolism, we discuss strengthening urban resilience and the possible impacts on carbon emissions, lifespan of material stocks, and disaster manegement etc.
