LAGAWE, Ifugao — The Japanese government has affirmed its support for the preservation of the Philippines’ Ifugao Rice Terraces, as one of the world’s globally important agriculture heritage sites.

Financial aid provider Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and Japanese government-run Kanazawa University gave the assurance during the visit of Ifugao State University (IFSU) officials to Japan on Monday.

We are here to state our gratefulness for the partnership and reiterate our utmost desire to continue to strengthen our collaboration and bring to the next level our Memorandum of Understanding last April 2018, IFSU President Eva Marie Codamon-Dugyon said in a statement released in Japan. We are truly grateful for our partnership with the Kanazawa University and JICA in the conservation and protection efforts in the Ifugao Rice Terraces as the only Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Site recognized by the United Nations Food and Agriculture in 2007.
