    Abstract The paper examines Japan’s capital city of Tokyo’s “Zero Emission Tokyo Strategy.” Our work shows that Tokyo’s strategy is particularly important in light of the 2030 Agenda’s emphasis on greenhouse-gas emissions reduction, equitable sustainability, and building holistic resilience against all hazards. The data indicate that Tokyo’s ambitions are built on a track record of global leadership in resource efficient water systems, transit networks, and other critical infrastructure. Moreover, Tokyo is part of Japan’s zero-emission communities, smart cities, all-hazard resilience, and other multilevel and silo-breaking collaborative platforms. Our analysis also makes recommendations for bolstering Tokyo’s strategy, to enhance co-benefits from integrating climate change mitigation and adaptation, in addition to strengthening pandemic response.
