|Profile|| My specialty is environmental law. I've been studying the legal system for biodiversity conservation from the perspective of international and domestic law.Internationally, I have conducted study on the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and the Convention on Biological Diversity. In doing so, I have focused on Ecosystem Approach, which is a guideline for ecosystem conservation adopted by the Convention on Biological Diversity. Domestically, I have conducted study on Urban Green Space Act, Urban Park Act, and Basic Act on Promotion of Urban Agriculture, as well as study on the formation of ecological network based on these laws.
For the past few years, I've been studying the application of the ecosystem approach to land use policy, based on previous research on the ecosystem approach.One of the principles of the Ecosystem Approach calls for management at the lowest appropriate level. I have to examine whether decision-making in land use planning based on the current National Land Use Planning Act, etc. is conducted at the lowest appropriate level, and study the state of the legal system and its rationality when the ecosystem approach is applied.
