JIRCAS Mail Magazine, No. 51 (January 2024)

Launched in 2022, the Green Asia Project aims to promote the development of a sustainable food system in the Asia-Monsoon Region.

As part of this effort, we are compiling the “Technology Catalog Contributing to Production Potential and Sustainability in the Asia-Monsoon Region” in partnership with relevant organizations.

We hope that this catalog will become a valuable resource for various stakeholders in the Asia-Monsoon region, guiding the implementation of sustainable practices in various fields through optimization and effective coordination.
