■ICAS（Environment Research Laboratory）
The Institute for Global Change Adaptation Science (ICAS), which was established in May 2006 at Ibaraki University, is a member of the Sustainability Science Consortium (SSC). ICAS conducts research, educational, and outreach activities with a focus on adaptation to climate change, Post-Earthquake rebuilding, and the promotion of renewable energy. The Asia-Pacific is of particular concern due to its staggering population and economic growth. The region is high vulnerable as it faces the brunt of climate change and natural disasters. Research activities are conducted in four categories: (1) Development of engineering methods for adaptation, (2) Development of climate change adaptive agricultural technologies, (3) Livelihood plans and policies for adaptation, and (4) Strategies for safe and secure societies in the future. In addition, ICAS promotes sustainability education through the Graduate Program on Sustainability Science.
