NIES is Japan’s primary institute for comprehensive research in environmental science, especially for climate change, sustainable material cycles, environmental risk, and the Asian environment.
In the Asian Environment Research Group, a core research project, "Development of Methods for Evaluating Air Quality in Asia" (FY2006-2010), is now being conducted. This project develops methods for evaluating air quality by combining observational and modeling studies in order to establish the necessary systems for air quality management and integrate scientific knowledge on air quality in the Asian region through international collaboration. The development and improvement of emission inventories in Asia is an essential task in this project.
