With the 2025 Osaka-Kansai Expo drawing near, firms in Kansai, including small and medium-size enterprises, are facing the need to implement the SDGs. A notable example is the shrimp farming business. Based on field research, we identify challenges and propose solutions for a successful implementation of the SDGs. We also analyze issues concerning implementing the SDGs in the textile industry, including human rights.
