About GEC-Japan

GEC-Japan is a networking platform to facilitate and promote institutional and research collaboration among Japan representatives of the Global Environmental Change programs of IHDP, DIVERSITAS, IGBP and WCRP and promote further collaboration among researchers, service users and policy-initiators with regional focus in Asia.

Having its emphasis and starting point in Japan, the GEC-Japan initiative endeavours to focus on establishment of sound and innovative research community to be the channel for Asia Vision on global change and sustainability development. Asia focus does not mean to exclude other regions but gathering scientific and societal efforts of all who are interested in and working on Asia to create an interdisciplinary research-based and transdisciplinary model for global change and sustainability issues.
