Hannan City is one of the few municipalities that have been certified by the Cabinet Office as both an "SDGs Future City" and a "Municipal SDGs Model Project" for its proactive efforts to achieve the SDGs. As one of the measures to solve the issues of sustainable use of farmland, support for farmers, and regional revitalization, Kansai Television proposed the cultivation of "Kan Kan Musume," a brand of corn with a sugar content of over 15 degrees that can be bitten raw, on abandoned farmland.
