Keywords:global environmental issues, sustainability, Asia, interdisciplinaryand transdisciplinary studies

Future Earth is an international program towards global sustainable society through the integrated global change research and transdisciplinary studies with many social stakeholders. particularly, we emphasize the importance of international collaboration in Asia, where global environmental issues are so serious under the rapid economic growth and development in this region. High potential of natural disaster risks of this region also needs to be seriously considered which frequently cause environmental issues more seriously.
