Project Information

Out of 60 million population living in the Lower Mekong Basin region, 80 % of them directly rely on the river system for their food, agriculture production and livelihoods. Rice is the most important crop in this region. With several challenges faced like drought and uncertainty in rainfall are considered hazard in this region. Due to water shortages in the dry season, agricultural productivity is low and farmers in this region are the most likely victims of climate change and extreme weather events.

The main objective of this project is to focus on farmer participation by educating farmers about System of Rice Intensification (SRI) practices and building strong farmer’s network at community level. In contrast with the traditional method of rice cultivation, SRI techniques require less water, seed, manure and labour and promises higher yield returns. Some major activities include exchanging ideas on new or alternative agroecological farming techniques, developing low cost location-specific technologies with profitable harvesting and increasing economic opportunities with better market needs for rainfed farmers.

With the support of ministries and governmental agencies in all 4 project countries, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam, this project functions well in building capacity and confidence among farmers. In addition, the project also focuses on increasing knowledge about farm and crop management with increased crop yield, productivity and profitability for poor farmers. The project also provides common platform for research based learning opportunities to farmers, trainers, researchers and other stakeholders from local to regional level. In the coming years, the project expects better results from higher crop productivity to profitability which will ensure farmers participation and continuous learning process.

Complementary Information

The project also focuses on women farmers and landless laborers throughout the region.
