Building resilience of rice-based systems in marginal environments

Develop and promote adoption of technologies to build climate resilience and sustainability of rice-based systems in marginal environments to increase productivity, food and nutritional security and farmers’ income.

Challenge

Goals

  • Utilize genetic resources and modern technologies to develop better climate resilient varieties
  • Develop production system technologies and knowledge for rice based agri systems in marginal environments
  • Increase adoption of climate-resilient rice varieties and production technologies through efficient seed systems and dissemination strategies in collaboration with partners’ institutes
  • Work with other CG institutes, CG platforms, advanced institutions and nations to translate global research benefit for rice- based agri food system community
