Global Science Conference on Climate Smart Agriculture

  1. 1. Innovation and Learning around the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) for Food Security and Climate-Smart Agriculture MISHRA ABHA1, KETELAAR JOHANNES2, UPHOFF NORMAN3 1 AC I S A I , A S I A N I N S T I T U T E O F T EC H N O LO GY, PAT HU M T HA N I , T H A I LA N D ; 2 FAO - I P M P R O G R A M M E, FAO R A P, B A N G KO K 1 0 2 0 0 , T H A I LA N D ; 3 S R I - R I C E , C O R N E LL U N I V ERS I T Y, I T HAC A , N Y, U S A . The 4th Global Science Conference on Climate-Smart Agriculture (The 4th GSC-CSA) 28th - 30th November, 2017, Johannesburg, South Africa
  2. 2. Sustaining and Enhancing the Momentum for Learning and Innovation around the System of Rice Intensification in Lower Mekong River Basin (SRI-LMB) 29-01-2018 Royal University of Agriculture National University of Laos Hanoi University of Agriculture Rajabhat University
  3. 3. 29-01-2018 Key Learnings 1. Improved livelihoods (productivity and profitability, labour productivity) 2. Resource use efficiency (water productivity, fertilizer use efficiency. Total energy input) 3. Climate change mitigation (GHG mitigation) Coverage  Covers 11 provinces and 33 rainfed districts  > 170 farmers’ participatory action research sites  > 400 fields experiments using SRI ideas  > 11,000 farmers directly involved  > 15 institutions involved SRI: Transplanting younger and fewer seedlings/hill or direct seeding with low seed rate; Maintaining wider spacing; Avoiding continuous soil saturation; Applying compost as much as possible
  4. 4. SRI: Develop climate-smart practices, address food security and achieve sustainable development goal in a more complementary way SRI has demonstrated that it is a high yielding, climate- smart, low cost practices with higher factor productivity (land, labors, water, chemicals, and seed). SRI can lead the way to poverty reduction and can make smallholder farming attractive, efficient, and smart  With SRI, the economic productivity is higher in rainfed areas compared to irrigated areas Collective action is needed by farmers' organization to capture the economies of scale and to commercialize the rainfed agriculture and sustain the benefits  National and international actors including private sectors’ support would be needed to support this development 70 % 66 %66 % 50 %46 % 30 % SRI-LMB ZMZWJYUWc 16% less GHH reduction
