Project Information

The Climate Resilient Rice Commercialization Sector Development Program (SDP) was proposed to support and accelerate the efficient and effective implementation of the Strategy on Agriculture and Water (SAW) and the Policy on the Promotion of Paddy Production and Rice Export (the Rice Policy).

It was aimed to address food security and rice commercialization through the following:

  • Prioritizing the strengthening of the rice value chain;
  • Improving the legal and regulatory framework in agricultural land management;
  • Improving access to credit by paddy producers and rice millers/exporters; and
  • Enhancing paddy production and productivity through improved irrigation water use efficiency, establishment of paddy post-harvesting facilities, and paddy crop insurance pilots.

The SDP addressed major strategic thrusts of the 2011 2013 Country Partnership Strategy, and sector strategies and roadmap, and complemented the on-going sector initiatives by emphasizing the commercialization aspects of rice.

Complementary Information

Effective gender mainstreaming (EGM) was employed through a concrete gender action plan of the project.
