603. Technology Showcase for Asia and Africa
JIRCAS aims to contribute to solving the world's food and environmental problems and to ensuring a stable supply of agricultural, forestry, and fishery products by conducting experimental research to improve technologies related to agriculture, forestry, and fisheries in tropical and subtropical regions and other developing regions, and by collecting, organizing, and providing analysis results from domestic and overseas data related to agriculture, forestry, and fisheries in these regions.
This time, focusing on the results of joint research conducted by JIRCAS in recent years, we have compiled technologies that can contribute to the development of sustainable food systems that are expected to be used in the Asia-Monsoon region and Sub-Saharan Africa.
Technology Showcase for the Asia-Monsoon Region https://www.jircas.go.jp/sites/default/files/JIRCAS_TechShowcase_en.pdf
Technology Showcase for Sub-Saharan Africa https://www.jircas.go.jp/sites/default/files/JIRCAS_TechShowcase_Sub-Sa…
Needless to say, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to building sustainable food systems, and even when basic technologies have been developed, their implementation requires optimization and adaptation in different countries and regions with different environments. We hope that the technologies presented in this showcase will serve as a reference for diverse stakeholders including government officials, researchers, extension officers, farmers, and the private sector in the Asia-Monsoon region and Sub-Saharan Africa, and help to transform sustainable food systems.
