Since fiscal 2006, Takeo has been conducting tropical rainforest development activities in Myanmar through the Japan International Forestry Promotion & Cooperation Center (JIFPRO). These activities are centered on the area of Bagan/Nyaung U, Mandalay, situated in Myanmar’s central semi-arid region. With the help of local assistance, we have cultivated water resources in this desolate land and created a 50-hectare forest over a three-year period (April 2005 to March 2008) using a variety of trees that can be used by local citizens.
