Past Projects

Environment Research and Technology Development Fund (ERTDF) Strategic Project (S-16-4) of the Ministry of Environment, Japan (FY2015-FY2020)

A new strategic project under environment research & technology development fund, Ministry of Environment, Japan Goals and Governance for Sustainable Development - Establishing and Implementing post-2015 Development Goals under Planetary Boundaries-Project Leader FY2013-2015

Environment Research and Technology Development Fund (ERTDF) S-11 POST 2015 - Project On Sustainability Transformation beyond 2015 - Project Leader (FY 2013 - 2015)

The aim of this research project is to contribute to international discussions toward the establishment of sustainable development goals (SDGs) in the short term, and to propose policies and frameworks for a long-term transformation in human behaviour toward sustainable society.

The 2015 deadline is approaching for achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In this context, the pace of international discussions is accelerating regarding global development goals and related issues after 2015. This project will conduct research from as many perspectives as possible about this debate, with the purpose of making an intellectual contribution toward the realization of a sustainable world.

Specifically, we have the following five objectives:
  1. Contribute to establishing the post-2015 development agenda.
  2. Promote trans-disciplinary research into ways to harmonize environment and development by leveraging sustainable development goals.
  3. Create a new trans-disciplinary epistemic community by promoting research-based collaboration. This is to address the lack of communication between research communities dealing with environmental issues and development issues.
  4. Aim to become an international research center through relevant international collaboration and networks.
  5. Through these activities, contribute to a broad societal debate about sustainability transformation.
