Welcome to Southeast Asia START Regional Center


The Southeast Asia START Regional Center is the regional research node of the Southeast Asia Regional Committee for START (SARCS). Southeast Asia is one of the eight existing regions of the Global Change SysTem for Analysis, Research and Training (START) network, jointly initiated by the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP), International Human Dimension Programme (IHDP), and World Climate Research Programme (WCRP).
