Satoyama trainees present research projects in Japan
by Press release

Trainees under the Ifugao Satoyama Meister Training Program (ISMTP) presented their research projects at the Kanzawa University Noto School Building in Suzu City, Ishikawa, Japan during a workshop with Noto Satoyama Meister staff, alumni, and trainees on Oct. 25.

Stephanie S. Ayahao, an ISMTP trainee from Kiangan – one of the four Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System (GIAHS) sites in Ifugao – shared her project on ikat weaving.

Ayahao believes that through her project, she can contribute to the revitalization of the traditional weaving industry in her community as an approach to passing the traditional weaving practices while being responsive to contemporary designs.

Arky Ralph T. Dulnuan presented his butterfly project in Banaue. As an ISMTP trainee, he intends to use his project to start a butterfly sanctuary and as an enterprise for his family.

An insect collector, Dulnuan attributed his interest in butterflies to the rice terraces and their significance in the biodiversity of the terraces. 

Another project presented during the workshop was the contextualization in teaching arts for elementary pupils as a powerful medium in the transmission of culture and the conservation of the rice terraces.

Judy Baggo, an ISMTP trainee from Hungduan, believes that the project would contribute to increasing the understanding of children of the culture and traditions about the rice terraces.

Other ISMTP projects include the use of hydroponics in the rice terraces, occupational health study on rice terraces farmers, ethno-medicinal plants in the rice terraces communities, blacksmithing, agro-tourism, kabir chicken raising, and early indigenous warning devices.

ISMTP, now on its second phase as a capacity building, is funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency and implemented by the Ifugao GIAHS Support Committee in Ishikawa Prefecture in collaboration with the Ifugao State University, University of the Philippines-Open University, and the Ifugao provincial government.

The project aims to develop the technical and leadership skills of the Ifugao Rice Terraces (IRT) stakeholders to sustain the IRT landscape through relevant trainings.

As a partner and implementer of the project, the Ifugao State University supports and encourages more research projects from the trainees to contribute in the conservation of the IRT as Unesco World Heritage and GIAHS sites.

The Ifugao Satoyama Meister trainees were part of the delegation that travelled to the Noto Region of Ishikawa for the GIAHS educational exchange.
