On 9 October, UNU-IAS will co- host a seminar to raise awareness and enhance collaboration among the Japanese research community on The World in 2050 (TWI2050) project.

TWI2050 is a global research project developed to support the successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by answering the crucial question of how to act on such issues as poverty, health, economic growth and environment. The goal is to help answer these questions on various agenda, provide science and fact-based knowledge for sustainable transformation, and support the policy process for achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
TWI2050 was launched by the IIASA in collaboration with the Stockholm Resilience Centre, the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), and other institutions. A number of major research institutes in the world are taking part in the project, including (NIES), IGES, and the Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth (RITE) from Japan.
UNU-IAS, in cooperation with NIES and Keio University, also has established a new research initiative on Inclusive Research on Integrated Implementation Methodology Towards Achievement of SDGs. This cross-cutting effort examines the environmental, social, and economic dimensions required for integrated implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
This seminar will be held as part of the UNU-IAS SDG Dialogue Series. Simultaneous interpretation (Japanese–English) will be provided.
