Think tank

Expanding economic activities in this area are triggering a variety of drastic changes in the lives of people in this region. IGES policy research should be flexible enough to strategically meet the actual needs of this area. Started in April 2010, the Fifth Phase of IGES strategic research focuses on three issues of critical importance in the Asia-Pacific region; climate change, natural resource management, and sustainable consumption and production. The research is conducted taking into consideration the three key terms of "actual research themes", "analytical frameworks", and "stakeholders". Moreover, IGES plays important roles in such cross-cutting themes as formulation of low-carbon society, climate change adaptation and water environment governance, serving as the secretariat for various international initiatives and research networks. In these areas, IGES will actively contribute to policy formulation in the form of information sharing and policy proposals.
