The Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security Regional Program for Southeast Asia (CCAFS-SEA) recently concluded a collective engagement and communication program workshop at the Agricultural Genetics Institute in Hanoi, Vietnam on 29-30 May.

The workshop participants drew insights from best practices of CGIAR member-centers, developed a roadmap to actively engage partners, and draw an overall communication plan to support the implementation of CCAFS research agenda and priorities.

Presented by Antonio Lambino

Mainstreaming ‘climate-smart’ into communicating rice science

  1. 1. Mainstreaming ‘climate-smart’ into communicating rice science Tony Lambino and Liz Baroña-Edra International Rice Research Institute
  2. 2. Communication @ IRRI - Strategic: every major request for comm support vetted from a stakeholder perspective - Coordinated: with donor relations, country partnerships, and research themes - Integrated: adopted a banner approach to stakeholder engagement
  3. 3. Some banners of rice science
  4. 4. The International Rice Research Institute Reduce poverty and hunger, improve health, ensure environmental sustainability through rice science. www.irri.org
  5. 5. The (first) green revolution 1960s-70s • yields ~1.5 tons per ha. Today • yields ~4.4 tons per ha.
  6. 6. Most hungry people in Asia Source: FAO
  7. 7. Population by 2040? 10b 7.5b
  8. 8. 45 50 55 60 65 70 Consumption per capita in kg/person Philippines = 120 kg Data Source: USDA, 2013 People like rice! Global, per person = 65 kg
  9. 9. Additional global rice needs: 8 - 10 MMT/ year 300 350 400 450 500 550 600 1991 1993 1995 1997 1999 2001 2003 2005 2007 2009 2011 2013 2015 2017 2019 2021 2023 2025 2027 2029 2031 2033 2035 Asia Africa Americas Rest of World

  11. 11. Worsening resource scarcity Land Labor Water
  12. 12. Climate change WILL reduce rice productivity
  13. 13. Climate-smart rice drought submergence salinity heat
  14. 14. Climate-Smart: Flood-tolerant rice India Oct. 31 Now used by 5m+ farmers Jul 31
  15. 15. Climate-smart 17 days after flooding Samba-Sub1 Samba Samba-Sub1 IR64-Sub1 IR49830 (Sub1) IR64 IR42 IR64 IR64-Sub1 Samba-Sub1 IR49830 (Sub1) Samba IR64 IR64-Sub1 IR49830 (Sub1) IR42 IR64-Sub1 IR64 IR49830 (Sub1) IR49830 (Sub1) IR42 Samba IR42 Samba
  16. 16. Climate-smart technologies Alternate wetting and drying reduces water use by 30% without yield loss.
  17. 17. World Economic Forum on East Asia “Climate change hastens the deterioration of rice-growing areas and of the condition of the poorest farmers, who already till unfavorable land to begin with,” said Zeigler. “This also means, though, that with each successful targeted intervention, the poorest of the world’s farmers stand to benefit the most.”
  18. 18. "The second green revolution is stirring in the fields of Asia… this time to (benefit) the poor lands and poorer farmers that the first passed by. Such lands are poor because they are prone to floods, drought, and salinity.”
  19. 19. “New seeds have been developed which can survive flooding, and soon there will be varieties that tolerate drought, extreme heat and saltiness, too, making the poorest lands fertile. So the second revolution could do even more to cut poverty than the first.”
