East Asia Regional Engagement Partner moved to Institute of Soil Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ISSAS)
At the beginning of May the Institute of Soil Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ISSAS) has officially been appointed as the new East Asia Regional Engagement Partner of Future Earth Coast. Previously the Yantai Institute of Coastal Zone Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences (YIC-CAS) served as a Regional Node for LOICZ since 2007 and continued after the transition to Future Earth Coast. Since YIC joined the distributed IPO in 2018 this new appointment felt like a natural step to further diversify and broaden our reach within the region. As Regional Engagement Partner ISSAS is aiming to promote FEC communication and cooperation for the scientists, engineers and governors in China and in the East Asia region (including China, Russia, Japan and Korea). Prof Yongming Luo will continue as Director of the East Asia Regional Engagement Partner.
