Abstract

Future Earth is a new research initiative for global sustainability with transdisciplinary approaches taken by engagement of stakeholders throughout the research processes, namely by codesign, co-production and co-delivery. Future Earth has a structure with Science Committee, Engagement Committee, Governing Council and the Secretariat. Permanent Secretariat was called for in 2013, and globally distributed, multi-national Secretariat has been proposed. Japan is involved both in global and regional secretariat, and is expected to lead the world both in research and secretariat role for Future Earth. Further discussions are encouraged among various stakeholders both domestically and internationally.
