This department mainly focuses on the developing nations in the tropics and conducts researches on the agricultural and rural development to conserve the environment and produce necessary food as well as contribute to poverty mitigation and improvement of livelihood living levels of local residents. Specifically, we conduct interdisciplinary researches with a wide vision integrating natural and social scientific approaches, including development and promotion of farming technology with awareness to environmental conservation and theories on social and economic development that enable sustainable agricultural development. The products achieved in these researches are being applied to the agricultural and rural development through international collaboration.
