Abstract: Today, Japan’s food self-sufficiency ratio on a calorie basis has stood at lower than 40 percent. In terms of self-sufficiency, Japanese forestry is under a similar circumstance. This situation in which Japan relies too much on imports from abroad is a big problem that will shake a foundation of the nation. Both industries have been confronted with not only a decline in working population but also the labors’ aging problem. Authors aim to develop a sustainable community management system for achieving a reinforcement of domestic agriculture and forestry, local production of energy for local consumption, and environmental management. In order to realize a conversion technology of forest resources to energy, there are three hurdles to overcome: 1. Quality control and cost reduction of energy, 2. Development of the wood-burner, and 3. Development of the promotion system. Regarding to these issues, Kyoto protocol and its attendant CO2 emission trading system can be the powerful driving force for accomplishing these three tasks which are the goals for a sustainable community management. Therefore, it is said that the first commitment period of 2008 to 2012 in Kyoto protocol is a unique opportunity for the dawn of the new social system and lifestyle.
