Baseline Study

A baseline study was carried out to assess current crops and varieties, seed supply and storage practices at community level, linking to the seed programmes prevailing in the 3 provinces, as well as the potential for introduction of new crops, varieties and the development of community- based seed production and storage systems for preparedness and disaster mitigation.


Within the national training workshop on DRR and CCA in the agriculture sector, a technical meeting on seed production, storage and maintenance was conducted. The meeting aimed at sharing the final results of the component “Strengthening seed production, storage and maintenance system at provincial, district and commune level”, including successful field pilot sites and the model of community-based rice seed towards disaster impacts reduction and climate change adaptation.
