Consortium for Unfavorable Rice Environments
The Consortium for Unfavorable Rice Environments (CURE) is a regional platform for partnerships among institutions led by national agricultural research and extension systems (NARES) from South and Southeast Asia.
Farmers, extension officers, and local government units from the upland rice-growing areas in the Cordillera region of northern Philippines visited the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) in Los Baños for a series of field day activities to share ideas to help improve their rice production.
The Consortium for Unfavorable Rice Environments (CURE) participated in the IFAD-Philippines Fourth Annual Country Programme Review (ACPoR) held on 28 November–1 December 2011, in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines. The Fourth ACPoR aimed to enhance the implementation and impact of IFAD-funded development interventions in contributing to rural poverty reduction in the country based on the updated Philippine development architecture.
