Program Results

What sort of results do JICA's Training and Dialogue Programs produce?


Participants in JICA's Training and Dialogue Programs are exposed to systems and development experiences unique to Japan and also discover useful technologies. Applying that knowledge to their own society and adapting it to meet their local circumstances, participants develop specialized solutions to specific problems. JICA's Training and Dialogue Programs thus provide assistance to people in developing countries so they can apply the experiences and technologies unique to Japan to solve problems in their home countries.
