Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES)
Urban Environmental Management


Established in 1998, the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) is an independent, not for profit think tank, based in Japan, that goes beyond research to provide practical ways to protect the earth's environment and to realize greater sustainability and equity in the global community. While the outlook of IGES is global, the principal geographical scope of its activities is Asia and the Pacific region.

Our work is not really on air quality itself but more on policy analyses and strategies for integrated approach on air pollution and GHG mitigation. We also have ongoing research on various aspects in urban transportation.
