Welcome to the website of the Green Asia Program!
The Advanced Graduate Program in Global Strategy for Green Asia (Green Asia, GA program) is an innovative education course for talented graduate students which provides an exceptional opportunity combining both a Masters and Ph.D. Its ultimate goal is the training of highly skilled original thinkers who are capable of meeting the formidable environmental challenges triggered by the rapid economic development of the Asia region over the last decade.
The relentless increase in world population (mostly attributed to Asia and Africa) will only add to global energy demands, as developing countries strive to reach equality with the developed world. Achieving sustainable economic expansion therefore is crucial in order to avoid massive environmental repercussions.
Asia as a region is one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse, combining vigorous development with rapid economic growth. As one of the first economically and technologically developed Asian nations, Japan has a unique opportunity to encourage and guide the wider sustainable growth of the region.
