Overview

To meet the challenges of our times, this site introduces the Humanosphere Potentiality Index (HPI). The site was developed and built upon existing publically available data sets and developed over the last 8 years by a team of researchers based at different Japanese research institutions to address current global potentiality from a long-term perspective. The HPI presents a different and unique way to envision the current condition of the world, one that is compatible with a strong sustainability paradigm approach*. This index demonstrates the significance of tropical countries for global sustainability. It offers a comparison between HPI and the Human Development Index (HDI). We chose to make this comparison as we believe that the HDI possesses a dominant developmental paradigm that justifies its perspective. 

This index offers a comparison with four other popular environmental indicators to provide insights into how human society should engage with the natural environment. We hope that this index will stimulate discussion on global potentiality from a long-term perspective.
