START Regional Center for East Asia is one of five regional research centers under the Global Change System for Analysis, Research & Training (START).
START, founded in 1992, promotes research-driven capacity building to advance knowledge generation and sharing on global environmental change issues. Its work is carried out by regionally based centers in Africa and Asia-Pacific, together with the International START Secretariat based in Washington, DC. On an annual basis, START engages over 1,000 scientists, policymakers, and practitioners from developing countries in its research, training and outreach programs.

START promotes capacity building through activities that include grants and fellowships for research and assessments, curricula development, advanced training institutes, and multi-stakeholder  dialogues that promote outreach to decision makers. START’s work advances science and strengthens interactions between science, policy, and practice in the areas of disaster risk reduction, land-use/land-cover change, biodiversity conservation, urban development, human health, water resources management, agriculture and food security and regional climate modeling and climate services.
