Lecture on OVOP to Trainees from the Maldives, 17 October 2019

I had a chance to give a lecture titled “One Village One Product (OVOP) Movement and Local Development” in a JICA training course for 4 officers from the Maldives in JICA Tsukuba.

I learned many things from discussion with them about very severe impact of resort-tourism on local development process in the context of OVOP Movement. I must investigate deeply what happens at the field of the Maldives.

Thank you very mucu Prof. Yoshihiko Nishimura, for giving very impressive opportunity this time for me.
