Innovative Program of Climate Change Projection for 21st Century

The "Innovative Program of Climate Change Projection for the 21st Century" was started to promote high level climate change research as a research promotion policy conducted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) from fiscal 2007 to 2011. This program took over the results that had been achieved in "The Project for Sustainable Coexistence of Human, Nature and the Earth" from fiscal 2002 to fiscal 2006.

The Earth Simulator is utilized in this program to provide highly accurate data at domestic and international workshops on global warming and is expected to contribute to policy consideration and the planning of technological countermeasures on global climate change, as well as to the IPCC 5th Assessment Report around 2013.
