    A total of 33 participants (10 women) participated in the Regional Rice Initiative – Workshop cum Study Tour on knowledge exchange on Farmer Field School curriculum development for promotion of efficient rice farming practices and value chains. Field visits were made to Sleman (Rice-Fish farming and “jajar legowo”) and Boyalali (organic rice value chains) organized by FAO Indonesia in collaboration with the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries and the international civil society organization Vredeseilanden (VECO) and its local partner CSO Aliansi Petani Padi Organik Boyolali (APOLLI). Following the study tour, the regional workshop was held to: (1) facilitate the regional exchange of knowledge and experiences on sustainable intensification of rice production, including Rice-Fish farming systems and rice value chains; and (2) take stock of Farmer Field School curricula currently available, introduce the FFS Guidance Document and identify opportunities for strengthening of the FFS cu rricula. The participants included representatives from government and civil society organization implementing partners and principal investigators engaged in results assessment in pilot RRI-Phase 2 countries (Indonesia, Lao PDR and Philippines). Results of the assessment studies will be communicated to national and local government for informing policy and for mobilization of funding support for up-scaling of the RRI Farmers Field Schools on Save and Grow-Sustainable Intensification of Rice Pro duction.

    Creating Partnerships for Sustainable Rice Systems in Sub-Saharan Africa through South-South Cooperation - GCP/RAF/489/VEN 2021
    Also available in:

    Rice consumption in Africa has grown exponentially in recent decades; however, most African countries are not self-sufficient in rice production. In sub-Saharan Africa, it is strongly believed that rice yields could be increased through a holistic strengthening of rice value chains. By increasing and improving production, countries would therefore be empowered to meet consumer demand for rice. This project was formulated in the context of South-South Cooperation (SSC) to contribute to the development of sustainable rice systems in sub-Saharan Africa by creating and leveraging partnerships between international, national and local actors from both the public and private sectors. Elements of its design included the promotion and production of the seeds of improved rice varieties, the improvement of post-harvest techniques among local farmers, and the identification, dissemination and adoption of good agricultural practices (GAPs) and effective rice production technologies.
