<p>The demographic transition theory is well-known as a theoretical consideration on global demographic change. However, it is forced to reconsider in confronting with a hyper-aging and population shrinking of Japanese population. Practically, the framework of capacity building of human resource is also changing, which is required in coping with global aging. A large quantity of international labor migration is generated on a difference among crossregional aging. The maintaining quality and quantity of international labor force is a big issue both in an origin country and a destination country. However, Japan, as developed country which has new problem of aging, does not contribute to the capacity building of human resource in coping with global aging. Recently, the Japanese government published “Asia Human Well-Being Initiative”, and will step forward to start capacity building of international human resource seriously. In this paper, I am considering about issues of capacity building of human resource on the behind of theoretical debates, and strategical challenges by world organizations, and Japanese domestic change towards global aging.</p>
