Registration procedure

The procedure for certifying agricultural heritage was initially carried out in conjunction with the annual FAO annual meeting, and then a dedicated GIAHS meeting was held, but there was no written format and it was customary. It has been broken.Therefore, in 2016, the Scientific Review Committee was established to formulate the "Guidelines for GIAHS Certification Procedures".The committee is composed of seven members selected from each regional division in FAO and is also in charge of accreditation examination.[9].

As a general rule, the certification examination is held once a year at the GIAHS meeting, and was held from November 2017 to 11 in 23, but on December 25 in Japan, wasabi cultivation in Shizuoka and sloping land farming in Awa There are some irregularities such as additional certification being made on March 12, 12.

Diversity of primary industry

Agricultural heritage is from the protection of a single traditional agriculture to the entire regionPrimary industryIt is shifting to a cultural formation area through mutual complementation of.For example, in Noto's Satoyama SatoumiRice terracesDry rice ears not only in agriculture but also in the sunHazaDried, charcoal-grilledlacquerware OfWajima lacquerSupportlacquerCultivation and lacquer scraping etc.forestry,Fried beach salt making method,Ama fishing,Mullet waiting turret fishingIt targets primary industries that utilize the blessings of the mountains and the sea throughout the Noto Peninsula.

In addition, Noto's Satoyama Satoumi was certified in 2011 (Heisei 23), but two years laterHodatsu Shimizu TownHas been additionally certified, and it has been confirmed that the scope of certification can be expanded systematically.

Difference from World Heritage

World heritageReal estateTangible goodsStructureAgricultural heritage is a tradition of traditional agricultural methods (intangible property) and the agricultural land and surrounding environment (intangible property).Cultural environment-Environmental goods), And sells the product as an agricultural heritage certified brand.Commercialization of heritageAlso admits.

To give an example, the registered range of the rice terraces of the Philippine Cordillera, a World Heritage Site, isBanaueThe rice terraces of Ifugao, which is an agricultural heritage, are narrowed down to a limited area with a good state of existence of about 200 square kilometers centered onIfugaoThere is a terraced rice field called PayoIfugaoApproximately 11 square kilometers spanning 175 cities and 680 villages, which is more than three times the size of a World Heritage Site.Especially in World HeritageCultural landscapeBecause the concept is applied, in agricultural workMechanization,PesticideIt is difficult to maintain and manage due to restrictions on the use of農民To each house to improve the life ofelectricityWe also recommend supply (not for entertainment)Weather informationPurpose of popularization of TV and Internet for acquisition),LandscapeMay interfere with.In addition, while the world heritage emphasizes the landscape of rice terraces, the agricultural heritage also includes shifting cultivation that takes place around the rice terraces.



Although the purpose of agricultural heritage is not to make the production area a tourist destination, the number of tourists tends to increase with the promotion effect of the registered area and the improvement of the name of the agricultural heritage.Due to the influence, entry into cultivated landPoliciesInfringement is emerging (Tourism pollution).

With the penetration of agricultural heritage brands, overseasPirated versionWithout permission like商標The use or distribution of counterfeit products made in Japan has been spurred.So far in JapanGeographical indicationSince there was no guarantee system, due to the revision of "" and the establishment of ""2015(Heisei27 years)May 6Than"GI markI started to introduce[10], It is difficult to crack down on foreign countries.


Agricultural heritage is for efficiency improvementIndustrializationAiming to improve the lives of farmersBy-productWe also encourage the production of Japanese6th industryWe are paying close attention to the change, but in Chinamachining工場From working toLewis Turning PointThere is also a situation in which the end of the story is overturned.

There is an image and tendency that agriculture = eco, but from the viewpoint of biodiversity, artificially cultivating a single crop is not possible.Continuous cropping disorderInviteEnvironmental load-Environmental destructionIt can be said that.It is said to be a recycling typeSwidden agricultureAlsoIndonesia-SumatraBurningSingaporeSeriousSmoke damage(Haze) is given[PR 5].

Also, in agriculture in developing countries such as Africa,PlantationExploitation of laborchild labourThe problem is also lurking.

た ば こ OfAmerican spirit"Tobacco is agriculture" in the promotion phrase ofキ ュ ー バ OfVinales ValleyAttobaccoThe cultivated area has become a World Heritage Site, but criticism of the cultivation of tobacco, which has become a social evil, is unavoidable (Tobacco Control Framework ConventionCultivation is not denied).

Development / outlook

FAO is WFP (United Nations World Food Program) And UNEP (United Nations Environmental Plan) And we are deepening cooperation with UNESCO and others on agriculture, environment, and food, centering on agricultural heritage, and we are also considering mutual complementation with private movements.As an example, as a public oneCreative city networkFood sector, in the private sectorSlow cityExerciseThe most beautiful village in the worldmotion,FujiExercise etc. can be raised.

In addition, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries is independentJapanese agricultural heritageEstablished a system[11]..Important agricultural and cultural heritage in ChinaChina's important agricultural and cultural heritage), South Korea is also promoting national agricultural and fishery heritage (농가 유산 ・ 어업 유산) as a domestic policy.
