As one of the research hubs of the National Institute’s Area Studies Project for Contemporary China, RIHN conducts the Research Initiative for Chinese Environmental Issues in order to promote environmental studies on China and networking with scholars concerned with environmental issues there. A RIHN-China Newsletter is published in Japanese and Chinese. The RIHN-China program also supports a series of symposia, held in both China and Japan, on critical environmental topics in China and East Asia. In 2015-16, among other activities, RIHN-China held three international workshops: “Learning from Dry Land Farming History in Loess Plateau”; “Environment and Health in Asia”; and “Exploring ‘Ecohealth’ in China and Japan”. Also, the program co-organized the 4th International Meeting of the Amur-Okhotsk Consortium at Harbin and conducted the 5th Lecture on Global Environmental Studies at Peking University.

Future Earth

Future Earth is a global research platform designed to provide the knowledge needed to support transformations towards sustainability (see www.futureearth.org). Future Earth seeks to build and connect knowledge to increase the impact of research in diverse contexts, to explore new development paths, and to find new ways to accelerate transitions to sustainable development. While mobilizing scientists around the world, the initiative will strengthen partnerships with policy-makers and other stakeholders, to design and implement research in close collaboration. The Collaboration Division, RIHN Center, is actively engaged in the co-design of research development including articulating a strategic research agenda for Japan. The Division also hosts the Regional Centre for Future Earth in Asia. The Centre supports the development of Future Earth in the region, helps connect researchers and other stakeholders, and facilitates the formation of regionally relevant and credible governance structures for the initiative. The Centre has convened a Regional Advisory Committee, which will over time develop into a Regional Committee, taking greater responsibility for the regional development of Future Earth.
