Modern industry is highly dependent on fossil fuels and has been faced on the instability of energy supply and destruction of environments. To overcome these problems and make human activities more sustainable, it is important to establish technologies that use plants and their products derived from solar energy. This project plans researches and activities for the creation of novel plant resources in Asia by international cooperation.
Main subjects are as follows;
1) Development of novel plant resources by plant biotechnology.
2) Search and evaluation of novel plant products in Asia.
3) Economical evaluation of the environmental restoration.
4) Reforestation in Asia.
