Future Earth is a major international research platform providing the knowledge and support to accelerate transformations to a sustainable world. Future Earth will work with partners in society to co-develop the knowledge needed to support decision-makers and societal change at all scales and in diverse contexts, by focusing on three Research Themes – Dynamic Planet, Global Sustainable Development and Transformations towards Sustainability. We are an open network for scientists of all disciplines, natural and social, as well as engineering, the humanities and law. We endorse world-class projects, networks and institutes who can contribute to our research agenda and are committed to transformation. 

The Asia Regional Centre is one of the four Regional Centres which constitute part of the Future Earth Secretariat, and it is hosted by the Research Institute for Humanity and Nature (RIHN) in Kyoto, Japan.

The Asia Regional Center provides a conduit for communication between the region and the Secretariat and advocates the Future Earth initiative in the region through close collaboration with the Regional Advisory Committee for Asia, a precursor to a Regional Committee.
