CORIGAP

CORIGAP

The Closing Rice Yield Gaps in Asia With Reduced Environmental Footprint (CORIGAP) aims to improve food security and gender equity, and alleviate poverty through optimizing productivity and sustainability of irrigated rice production systems.

STRASA-STRV

STRASA-STRV

The Stress-Tolerant Rice for Africa and South Asia Project: producing more with less to increase productivity and improve lives

Revitalizing partnerships for better hybrids

Revitalizing partnerships for better hybrids

Hybrid rice has the potential to produce up to 30% more yield than the best-performing modern inbred varieties, making it a significant and important option to help sustain the rice supply and keep prices low.

Novel approaches in climate-smart villages in the Mekong region

Novel approaches in climate-smart villages in the Mekong region

To improve the capacities and capabilities of rural communities in addressing climate change challenges, the climate-smart agriculture (CSA) model is being introduced as a means to ensure food security, promote adaptation, and build resilience to climatic stresses particularly in the Mekong Deltas.

‘No regret’ mitigation strategies in rice production

‘No regret’ mitigation strategies in rice production

The project aims to develop an innovative approach based on highlighting co-benefits of mitigation options, integrating alternate wetting and drying (AWD) into a farming strategy, as opposed to approaches focusing only emissions reductions.

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.

Green Super Rice (GSR) Project

Green Super Rice (GSR) Project

Rice cultivars that can produce high and stable yields with less inputs (water, fertilizers, pesticides). Thus, GSR varieties are climate-smart and can help farmers protect the environment—and themselves.
