System of Rice Intensification (SRI) findings shared at Hanoi Workshop

These results and other project details were shared at Regional Review
and Planning Workshop of the SRI-LMB Project organized in Hanoi,
Vietnam on 24-25 April 2017.

The results was reported from 172 action research sites spread over 33
districts in 11 provinces — three in Cambodia (Kampot, Kampong Speu and
Takeo); three in Thailand (Uttaradit, Sisaket and Surin); two in
Vietnam (Bac Giang and Ha Tinh); and three in Laos (Khammouan,
Savannakhet and Vientiane); as a part of the regional collaborative
project led by the Asian Center of Innovation for Sustainable
Agriculture Intensification (ACISAI) of the Asian Institute of
Technology, Thailand with funding support from the European
Union.

The total cost of action is 3.4 million Euros, and the project is
being implemented in rainfed areas of Lower Mekong River Basin
involving smallholder farmers, while partnering with the Food and
Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Oxfam America,
SRI-Rice, Cornell University, USA, and University of Queensland,
Australia; and other government ministries and national universities.
The project aims to work in tandem with the policies of the national
ministries to support intensification of rice production in food
insecure provinces using the System of Rice Intensification (SRI)
principle.
