2nd Symposium of JSPS Core-to Core Program -Center of Excellence in Health Risk Assessment for Adaptation to Climate Change-

2nd Symposium of JSPS Core-to Core Program -Center of Excellence in Health Risk Assessment for Adaptation to Climate Change-


"Center of Excellence in Health Risk Assessment for Adaptation to Climate Change" is funded by Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Core-to-Core program.

The center aims to establish network-based research centers for health risk assessment for climate change adaptation in Japan, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines. It endeavors to be a platform for sharing knowledge. Linking science with policies, not just academic activities, will greatly contribute to the country’s climate change adaptation policy.

The 2nd symposium of the JSPS Core-to-Core program will take place online, March 5, 2021, in cooperation with University of Tokyo – Institute for Future Initiatives, Ehime and Yamagata universities. This event will tackle the impacts of climate change on agriculture, waste generation, water sanitation and air quality in Asia. The symposium also serves as an avenue to provide solutions for the problems brought by these effects to ensure a sustainable future.
