740. International Day of Forests 2023 ーForests and Health

Tomorrow, March 21st, is the International Day of Forests. The theme for 2023 is Healthy forests for healthy people. Forests are not only important sources of food and nutrition, but also play a major role in the fight against climate change.

JIRCAS is implementing the SATREPS Project Strengthening Tropical Forest Resilience Based on Management and Utilization of Genetic Resources Capable of Climate Change Adaptation in Indonesia to achieve sustainable use and conservation of tropical forest resources.

Through international joint research, the project aims to improve the tropical forest industry into a self-sustaining industry that can use forest resources and functions under climate change and contribute to climate change mitigation through the following research activities.

  • Development and dissemination of tropical forestry seeds and seedlings that are adaptable to climate change and productivity
  • Planning of afforestation methods and seed distribution rules in consideration of climate change
  • Formation of incentives for social implementation of climate change adaptation in afforestation
