Since KJ’s earliest days, we have covered major environmental issues in Japan and elsewhere in Asia. Our final print issue, Biodiversity (75) was produced especially for the UN’s COP10 Summit in Nagoya, 2010; we gave away nearly 1000 copies to participants.

Alert readers will note, however, that this section is titled “Nature,” not “Environment.” These days, environment is too often viewed as extractable resource, or a malfunctioning sector requiring (additional) human intervention. We believe that a deeper, more integrated understanding of our shared natural environment is essential. We remain committed to presenting thought-provoking views on nature in Asia, and the place of humanity — and all other species — within it.
