  • To reduce vulnerability of smallholder farmers engaged in rice production

Project Description

The tools of RIICE provide information about the scope and impact of disasters and a precise and timely overview of planted rice area and expected and actual yields – down to the village level. Such a national rice production monitoring system helps government decision makers, agricultural intermediaries, traders and relief organizations in better managing domestic rice production and distribution during normal growing conditions and after natural catastrophes struck. RIICE is further supporting its partners to use the generated information to implement agricultural insurance solutions that are more efficient and transparent.

Project Partners
