The Ministry of the Environment (MOE) has set up a new page titled "Video and Photograph Library" on its official website. Videos and photographs in the library are made available to the public for better understanding of Japan's nature and the status of environmental problems and efforts to solve such problems. The library also provides resources for environmental education and awareness-raising.

The MOE invites local governments and governmental organizations to contribute their videos, DVDs and photographs to the library, to supplement the materials provided by the MOE. For details, please visit our Video and Photograph Library ( (in Japanese).
