The main purpose of this consultation is to provide members of ICSU (National Organizations and Unions) in Asia and the Pacific, as well as representatives from the scientific community and regional organizations, the opportunity to participate in the discussions on Future Earth in Asia and the Pacific region.

The Consultation aims to further enhance understanding of Future Earth especially in relation to what is needed to promote on-the-ground transdisciplinary integrative research that can point the way towards the transformative pathways to global sustainability. It will explore the cross-cutting capabilities needed to support Future Earth research in Asia and the Pacific and the means of funding and implementation of a programme to enhance those capabilities. The Consultation also aims to discuss opportunities and challenges in building a Future Earth research community in the region.

The main expected outcomes of the Consultation will be a better understanding of how Future Earth can be implemented in Asia and the Pacific, a framework to facilitate integrated research towards the goals of Future Earth, and identification of the steps necessary to address the need for cross cutting capabilities to support Future Earth research in Asia and the Pacific. Hopefully an initial road map for the implementation and monitoring of progress of Future Earth in the region can also be produced.
