1. Overview: NIES Annual Report 2014
NIES Annual Report 2014 is the official record of activities at the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES), in Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 (April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014), and introduces our institute and its research outcomes for this period for the reference of interested parties, both in Japan and overseas, in English.
The current volume details the status and progress of our activities in the third year of our current (third) five-year plan (FY 2011-2015) with many pictures and figures to illustrate our various research topics and outcomes for this period. In March of FY 2012, we revised our five-year plan to reflect research undertaken in the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake on disasters and the environment, including integrated and comprehensive surveys and studies towards recovery and restoration from the disaster, currently being implemented by NIES.
A significant development in the period of the current annual report is the creation of a Fukushima Project Office at NIES in October 2013, in preparation for the establishment of a NIES Fukushima Headquarters by 2016, to be located in the Fukushima Prefectiure Center for Environmental Creation (provisional name).
The annual report for FY 2013 in Japanese was also published in June of this year, and can be viewed below.
