When issues of the global environment, such as global warming, become more and more critical, it is a matter of
urgency for international society to advance sustainable techniques for the management and conservation of forests
on a worldwide basis and especially in the tropics.
For life on earth to be sustained and graced with the rich benefits of
forests, in the future, the Japan International Forestry Promotion and
Cooperation CenteriJIFPRO) advocates the idea of recreating a Green Earth.
To promote private sector participation in international forestry cooperation
toward this aim, JIFPRO carries out a variety of programmes that can be
categorized into six activities shown in a figure below. To bequeath a
Green Earth to our descendants is the ultimate wish of JIFPRO, and toward
this goal, JIFPRO continues its endeavours.
