General Description of the Research Project

Using information and communications technology to support sustainable marine culture and capture adapted to climate change
Marine culture and capture in Indonesia have a high potential for job creation and the development of fishing communities. Their production, however, is unstable because of difficulties in adapting to the environmental changes caused by climate change. The project will generate big data by quantifying and digitizing the marine environment and traceability of marine products by utilizing ICT* and analyze the generated data to establish marine culture and capture technologies based on a scientific analysis of big data. In addition, a cloud-based service will be developed and rolled out through Indonesia as a decision-making support system.  * ICT・・・Information and Communications Technology

Contribute to the development of fishing communities and global food security through advancement of marine culture and capture
Advancement of marine culture and capture will help invigorate economic circulation in fishing communities, opening up opportunities for higher education and freedom of occupational choices to local people, which in turn will help mitigate poverty and close economic gaps. Moreover, ensuring stable and systematic marine production in Indonesia, which has the second-longest coastline in the world, will contribute to global food security.
