Background

In recent years, the momentum to solve global issues has been accelerating, while the continuous progress of science and technology has brought about a great change in the world. We are now in an era where international competitiveness depends on the difference in strategies such as cooperation in different fields and the introduction of cutting-edge technologies. In order to promote the transition to a healthy and sustainable global food system for both the earth and humankind, the collection, analysis, and provision of comprehensive information linking socioeconomics, food nutrition, and technological development is expected.

Objectives

In addition to collecting and systematically organizing information on international agriculture, forestry and fisheries, we provide high-quality information. In addition, we will establish our position as Japan's foremost intelligence center by creating original content and devising effective methods of distribution to target audiences.

Research Themes

  • Strategic public relations
  • Global center functions
  • Analysis of trends in food and nutrition supply and  agricultural technologies
  • Development of technology evaluation system

Target Countries

Japan and the rest of the world

Target Beneficiaries
