Future Earth embraces a strong regional engagement for its global agenda to adequately address regional science priorities and end user needs. To achieve this, the Regional Center provides the five core functions (i.e., coordination, research enabling, communication, capacity building and synthesis and foresight) of the Executive Secretariat within Regions. The Asia Center will facilitate the implementation and development of the Future Earth in Asia through networking partners and providing platform for interaction, while closely collaborating with the Executive Secretariat.
