Approaches to Addressing the Increased Complexity of Sustainability Challenges in East Asia(2017_2_20_009)


This research project aims to stimulate discussion on the governance of a cooperative solution, especially for various intricate sustainability problems in the East-Asia region. In order to go beyond the limit of bilateral or multilateral approaches by individual sectors, several special case studies on complex cross-border and cross-sector issues will clarify where and what the true nature of the problem is.
