We are pleased to announce that, on May 28, START signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES).
The MoU provides a framework for mutual activities over the next four years. START and IGES will work together to advance research and capacity building that strengthens understanding and promotes utilisation of the Regional Circulating and Ecological Sphere (Regional/Local-CES) concept, in order to address sustainability challenges in Asia.
The Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) was established in March 1998 under an initiative of the Japanese government. The aim of the Institute is to achieve a new paradigm for civilization and conduct innovative policy development and strategic research for environmental measures, reflecting the results of research into political decisions for realising sustainable development both in the Asia-Pacific region and globally.
