Investment in climate-resilient development and early adoption of climate technologies can provide opportunities for sustainable and resource-efficient socioeconomic growth, such as green employment and resilient business models.
By integrating sustainable landscape and natural resource management with sustainable and resilient lifestyles, The National Initiative for Rice Production contribute to the realization of ending hunger, poverty and malnutrition in the rural community. The project also seeks to “increase the adaptive ability of vulnerable communities and sectors so that they are robust to the effects of climate change.”
Collaboration with the national and state governments will aid in the enhancement of policies and procedures for community-based development and the creation of an enabling environment for smallholder rice producers. This would also assist to increase the capabilities and provide resources to invest sustainably in climate- and disaster-resilient and market-oriented infrastructure and livelihoods, improving community resilience and reducing food insecurity and poverty among rural people living in risk areas.
