Climate-smart agro-advisory services for major food crops in South and Southeast Asia

Climate-smart agro-advisory services for major food crops in South and Southeast Asia

The Climate-Smart Agriculture Advisory Service (CSAAS) seeks to harness the power of information and communications technology (ICT) for the outscaling of climate-smart agriculture (CSA) technologies and climate-informed advisory services for rice, maize, and wheat in South and Southeast Asia.

Changes in rice farming in the Philippines: Insights from five decades of a household-level survey

Changes in rice farming in the Philippines: Insights from five decades of a household-level survey

P. Moya, K. Kajisa, R. Barker, S. Mohanty, F. Gascon, M.R. San Valentin

This book centers around the structural and economic changes in rice farming that have occurred in the Philippines during the past five decades. As a researcher at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) for more than 30 years, Piedad Moya, the lead author, has been a witness to these changes through her involvement and encounters with farmers. This experience has given her first-hand knowledge of what is actually happening in farmers’ fields and with their families
