GIAHS short movie - from GIAHS application to designation

31 July 2018


With the support of the Japanese government, FAO has created a short movie to explain what is GIAHS.

The video introduces what GIAHS is, how many sites are designated, and explains how they are recognized, taking one example of Wakayama prefecture in Japan. Not only does the video illustrate the process to the recognition, it also highlights the importance of conservation, passing it on to the future generations.
