Future Directions in the Development of International Strategy

“ Prevention of Desertification – Toward the Building of Sustainable Communities-” , which is the theme of our International Strategy, aims not only to prevent desertification but also to tackle such world problems as population issues, food issues, environmental issues and energy issues. These problems demand urgent action and need to be addressed on a global scale. Devising solutions to these requires long-term continuous education and research efforts at a cross – faculty level. Therefore, our international strategy aims to promote global development through activities in the fields of education and research which are planned, supported and coordinated by our newly – established “ Headquarters for Planning and Promoting International Strategies”. In this way, the university will work to strengthen its overseas focus through a campus – wide research system involving the Faculties of Regional Sciences, Medicine, Engineering and Agriculture.
