New UNU-ISP project focus on climatic and ecosystem changes in Asia
The United Nations University Institute for Sustainability and Peace (UNU-ISP) has launched a project focused on climatic and ecosystem changes in Asia.
The UNU-ISP project “Strategy to Enhance Resilience to Climate and Ecosystem Changes Utilizing Traditional Bio-production Systems in Rural Asia” is supported by the Environment Research and Technology Development Fund of the Ministry of the Environment, Japan. Prof. Kazuhiko Takeuchi, Vice-Rector of UNU and Director of UNU-ISP, will act as the principal researcher to investigate the topic.
This two-year UNU-ISP project (2011–2013) aims to examine the influence of climatic and ecological changes on agriculture in Asia and the vulnerability of the social economy, quantitatively and qualitatively, through econometric and statistical models and research conducted in agricultural communities.
