SRI in Lower Mekong River Basin (SRI-LMB)

The suite of management practices that characterize SRI is being evaluated and refined in a regional project which supports farmers-led research for the development of location-specific applications in rainfed areas of the LMB countries, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Thailand.

Financed by the European Union, the Project “SRI-LMB” implementation is led by the Asian Center of Innovation for Sustainable Agricultural Intensification (ACISAI). Partners include the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Oxfam America, national ministries and local-level agencies in the four countries as well as universities and civil society organizations. Experts at the SRI-Rice Center at Cornell University and the University of Queensland cooperate with the project. The Project aims to contribute towards the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 2 (reducing hunger, improving nutrition and promoting sustainable agriculture development)
