|intro||IDACA, the training institute of the Japanese agricultural cooperative movement, is a former member of AgriCord. The IDACA offices are located at about 50 km west of Tokyo.|
AgriCord established contact with IDACA after the recent earthquake and tsunami. AgriCord‘s concerns have been appreciated by IDACA. IDACA informed us that the IDACA staff are all fine fortunately because they are far away from the epicenter of the quake and from the nuclear power plants. Although Tokyo escaped from the quake devastation they felt the very strong quake in their building too. But what worries them most now is the possible effect caused by the nuclear power stations located about 250km away from Tokyo. IDACA will keep us informed.
