  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 http://www.sri-lmb.ait.asia/ 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 https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0BwAND94jB80zZG5SSF ZMZWJYUWc 16% less GHH reduction
