[AHW22-14] A practice of transdisciplinarity toward restoration of sound hydrologic cycle in Inbanuma watershed, Chiba Prefecture, Japan to share the experience and knowledge globally

One of the goals in "Future Earth," decadal international initiative on global environmental changes, is the establishment of transdisciplinarity through collaboration between stakeholders including scientists. The practice should be solution-oriented, and participants will make collaboration with ‘solution’, not ‘subject’, being common goal.

Inbanuma is a closed lake located within Tokyo metropolitan area, Japan, and serve as a water resource of Chiba Prefecture. The water quality, however, keeps the worst one recently. To improve water quality and create sustainable region, Chiba Prefecture founded a council for sound hydrologic cycle in Inbanuma watershed in 2001. The activity have been made by collaborations with many stakeholders in different sectors. This is a good practice of transdisciplinarity.

This is a case study in a local area, however, the experience and knowledge may become common ones by sharing globally. We, future earth scientist, should make a sharing system of knowledge and experience.
