Thailand Workplan

  1. 1. Discussion points •Province selection •Abiotic and biotic stress information needed •Food security issues relation to province selection •Policy baseline & strategy e.g cross visits •Soil quality improvement – how to measure it •Is this about intensification or other crops
  2. 2. Relevant background and current status The rainfed LMB region is inhabited by 60 million people, with one-third living on less than one dollar per day. For example, in Northeast Thailand, the largest rice area in the country with the greatest number of farms (2.7 million); income per capita is less than 40% of the national average, and the incidence of poverty is high, affecting 37% of the population (Matsuo, 2002). Although, Thailand is a food surplus country at the macro level, however in terms of food accessibility at the household level, it remains a problem, particularly in the rural remote areas of Northeast and North region. A recent increase in food price and production cost has inevitably impacted on Thailand’s rural poor. With a declining purchasing power, these poor households face the risk of food insecurity. For overcoming these crises, it is suggested that empowering small-scale famers capacity building based on sufficiency economy concept is necessary for further development. This can work if it is coupled with farm productivity enhancement through agricultural research and development investment including on-farm resource management for enhancing the resource-use efficiency under the broader umbrella of sustainable agriculture development. 
