    626. Biodiversity, Climate Change and Insects Flying into Urban Buildings

    Changes in behavior patterns due to extreme weather can have a variety of consequences for the survival of many organisms, including insects. There is concern that climate change will affect the survival of organisms in unexpected places around the world, leading to loss of biodiversity. Today, I would like to consider climate change and biodiversity from the perspective of issues close to home in Tsukuba, where JIRCAS is located.

    603. Technology Showcase for Asia and Africa

    Focusing on the results of collaborative research conducted by JIRCAS in recent years, we have compiled technologies that can contribute to the development of sustainable food systems, which are expected to be utilized in the Asia-Monsoon region and Sub-Saharan Africa. We hope that the technologies presented in this showcase will serve as a reference for a wide range of stakeholders and help to transform sustainable food systems.
