644. Green Asia International Scientific Advisory Committee
JIRCAS started the Green Asia project in FY2022 with the aim of promoting the application of Japanese agriculture, forestry, and fisheries technologies in the Asia-Monsoon region, based on its long experience in international joint research in the fields of agriculture, forestry, and fisheries. The Asia-Monsoon region shares many characteristics with Japan, such as high temperatures and humidity, rice-based agriculture, and a high percentage of small- and medium-scale farmers, and many of the technologies and ideas are expected to be adaptable. This project aims to promote the application of these excellent technologies and ideas in countries in the Asia-Monsoon region through the collection, analysis, and dissemination of information on domestic and international research results and applied research on promising technologies.
As part of this effort, the project has established the International Scientific Advisory Board for Strategy “MeaDRI”, a committee that will advise on the activities of the “Green Asia” project. The first meeting of the advisory board will be held in Tokyo on October 25, 2022. At this meeting, it is expected that there will be a lively exchange of opinions on the activities to be conducted under the “Green Asia” project.
Prior to the meeting, we have launched the website of the International Center for Strategy “MeaDRI”, which will serve as the center of the Green Asia project activities. We plan to use this site to publish the discussions at the advisory board meetings, and disseminate the activities and research results of the Green Asia project.
