Creating Policies to help organic farmers in Lao PDR

From 2012 to 2016, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), with the support of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), worked with governments in four countries in Asia to help them develop pro-poor policies and approaches to better manage risks and vulnerabilities faced by smallholder farmers.   In Lao PDR, FAO provided guidance and technical support in policy analysis and formulation to staff of the National Agriculture and Forestry Research Institute (NAFRI).  With FAO guidance, Dr. Hongkhuon Sisaphaithong from NAFRI, drafted policy recommendations to ensure a profitable organic vegetable sector.  NAFRI can now provide more comprehensive advice, which includes both technical and economic solutions, to farmers and the government.

Transforming Cooperatives and Farmers' Lives - Viet Nam

From 2012 to 2016, the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), with the support of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), worked with governments in four countries in Asia to help them develop pro-poor policies and approaches to better manage risks and vulnerabilities faced by smallholder farmers.   In Vietnam, FAO and the Institute of Policy and Strategy for Agriculture and Rural Development (IPSARD) implemented a pilot project to strengthen the capacity and services of the Agricultural Service Cooperative (ASC) and improve production of its members in Thai Binh Province. The project instructed farmers in agricultural techniques to increase their harvest yields and standardised their products.  This allows the farmers and Coop to negotiate contracts with bigger companies.  The pilot project successfully strengthened the Cooperatives and provided farmers with links to a new market which has increased income and improved their lives.

Iraq irrigation project:Demining and repair initiative restores key irrigation canals near Mosul

Some 200 000 people from Mosul and across Iraq will be able to earn an income for the first time since 2014, thanks to a new FAO project that is restoring irrigation to 250 000 hectares of farmland.Water will soon be flowing again through the canals that used to feed the once-fertile land some 30 km west of Mosul – Iraq’s third largest city. Through the cash-for-work component of the project, FAO supports vulnerable families who need money for daily needs, including food and clothes, heating and transport. Many of them have not had paid employment for at least two years. Participants are clearing the main canal of the northern Al Jazeera irrigation scheme of dirt, stones and debris, which will allow it to again feed small canals throughout the farming landscape. FAO has also repaired the pumping station that feeds the canal system from Mosul Dam. And, for the first time, the agency is collaborating with a demining company to clear valuable farmland around the canals of undetonated ordinances, so farmers can plant crops and graze their livestock safely. The project is already benefiting more than 3 000 people and is essential in getting farming activities in the area back underway.
