Environment and Natural Resource Management

Development of agricultural technologies based on sustainable management of environment and natural resources in developing regions

A Third Medium-Term goal, "Development of agricultural technologies based on sustainable management of the environment and natural resources in developing regions" has been set as one of the research directions, towards which JIRCAS should endeavor. The following global environmental problems enumerated below have manifested themselves recently. Agricultural technology development based on sustainable resource management is required to maintain and expand the agricultural, forestry and fishery industries in developing countries which are susceptible to these types of problems. The Natural Resources and Environment Program will strive towards five projects to achieve this goal, as shown in Fig. 1.
