  3. (Aug. 26, 2015) Integration of Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Measures for Small-Scale Rice Cultivation

(Aug. 26, 2015) Integration of Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation Measures for Small-Scale Rice Cultivation

Highlights

The workshop was participated by rice scientists and climate change experts who shared their knowledge on adaptation and mitigation measures on rice cultivation in the midst of climate change. Scientific studies were presented showing field trials in relation to weather data, crop models and climate change impacts. Discussions focused mainly on integration measures being conducted by various countries regarding climate change mitigation efforts for rice-based agriculture.

Major findings and recommendations

  1. Various participants from monsoon Asia reported circumstantial evidences on the risks of climate change on rice-based agriculture in their respective countries. Nevertheless, participants agreed and recommended that the following measures will gain a more precise understanding of the impacts of climate change on rice cropping systems in Asia: 1) Conduct long-term field trials and collect weather data at each site; 2) Evaluate the collected field trial and weather data; 3) Calibrate the multi-crop models at each site with at least three-year data; and 4) Run the simulations with the multi-crop models to feature the impacts of climate change on rice production with current conventional practices.
  2. Participants from Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam expressed their interest in participating in the aforementioned collaborative modeling and simulation studies with the Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP).
  3. The symposium organizers also shared the other possible network opportunities to tackle the climate-related issues: Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA); FAO-Regional Rice Initiative; ASP, Asia Soil
