Purpose of establishment:
As the food demand increases in many developing countries because of the population growth and improvement of eating habit, their production level is in a low and unstable condition and serious problems of starvation and poverty
still remain. Furthermore, since global environmental problems arise, it is considered to be important to promote the continuous development of agriculture, forestry and fishery in harmony with the natural ecosystem. Demands for research aids for the agriculture, forestry and fishery industry by
developing countries are increasing. In response to these demands, Tropical Agriculture Research Center, Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries was progressively reorganized and Japan International Research Center for
Agricultural Science, Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries was established in October, 1993. The Center became Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Science, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Ministry, Independent Administrative Institution in April, 2001.
