The National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES), Japan, is undertaking a broad range of environmental research toward the realization of sustainable societies. To disseminate the outcomes of this research at NIES and to bridge the gaps between science and policy, in 2016 NIES initiated the Forum on Sustainable Future in Asia in collaboration with the University of Tokyo and the Asian Institute of Technology. The 5th International Forum on Sustainable Future in Asia was held in Myanmar on January 21 and 22, 2020. The aim of the forum is to create a foundation for a consortium of relevant institutions and governments in the region that will facilitate the exchange of knowledge gained through research and catalyze dialogue at the policy–research interface in the spheres of environmental management and sustainable development in Asia.
