The human resources development is one of the most important issues in the Future Earth. The International Environment Leaders Training Program launched in 2008 by MEXT and run by 17 universities has completed in the end of 2014 FY, and it has produced approximately 1300 Environmental Leaders in total. The program has aimed to establish centers or systems to foster environment leaders, who will take the leadership to solve the environmental problems in developing countries. The major of the Environmental Leaders fostered by 17 universities covers a variety of field in the environmental issues, low carbon technology, integrated watershed management, adaptation to climate change, resilience of environment, water resources, energy, comprehensive wisdom, leadership, and so on. The home countries of the environmental leaders are approximately 80 such as China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Japan, etc. We need to use the talents and network of the Environmental Leaders for Future Earth, considering the diversity of the capacity and the region. We will present cases of the missions and education contents of the Environmental Leaders to discuss the issues and perspectives of human resources development in the Future Earth.
