  • RiceClima project review Climate Change Impacts, Vulnerability and Adaptation: Sustaining Rice Production in Bangladesh

    Dhaka, 210913Royal Norwegian Embassy, Dhaka

  • Goal and objectivesTo assess the impacts of climate change on water resources and rice yields in the selected rice growing sub-divisions

    To identify suitable adaptation measures to address the impacts of droughts and salinity on rice production.

    To analyse the socio-economic vulnerability, farmers ability to adapt, and identify needs for the capacity development

    To disseminate results to policy makers, farmers, scientific community through active involvement of stakeholders (challenge integrated/multidisciplinary approach)

  • Study areasRajshahi Main challengesDrought and water stressSuitable rice cropping systems/drought tolerant rice varietiesBarisal Main challenges-Saline intrusion Salt tolerance rice varietiesSoil /water management

  • Main project outputs

    Work Component 1:Climate and Hydrology Modeling D 1.1 Future climate and hydrology scenarios and water availability D 1.2 Benchmark report from the two study areas showing the agricultural systems.D 1.3 Crop model scenariosD 1.4 A technical brief on model options and recommendations(shared results with stakeholders, quality control of deliverables)

  • Main project outputs

    Work Component 2: Demonstration of suitable adaptation technologies 2.1 A digest of local agro-techniques practiced by farmers in the study regions and challengesFarmers training on rice production systems conducted Trials at Rajshahi for screening drought tolerant rice varieties Salt tolerant rice varieties being tested at BRRI WUE trials and results sharedPest and disease risk management

  • Planned/actual tasks and outputs

    Work component 3 Socio-economic vulnerability and adaptive capacityD 3.1 Two socio-economic vulnerability reports draftedD 3.2 A technical brief from the stakeholder analysis developed-18 farmers Focus Group meetings were conducted in the two project areas /FGD reports. 3.5 Stakeholder workshops and training for farmers

  • Planned/actual tasks and outputs

    Work component 4: Integration, dissemination and project managementStakeholder workshop, Jan 2013, DhakaAnnual work plan 2013Dissemination of results at conferences (Spain, April 2013)Partners meeting in May, 2013, at Bioforsk, s, NorwayTraining workshops for farmers conducted in Rajshahi and Barisal

  • Stakeholder interaction To ensure that project results are more relevant and useful to end users To provide inputs to adaptation plans for agriculture sector at different levelsTo establish science-policy linkage (scientific results are taken up by policy makers) To ensure that planned project outcomes are achieved (field visits, stakeholder workshops, FGDs, meetings with key stakeholders)

  • Dissemination and capacity buildingTransfer of knowledge between partners Sharing of project results at local and regional workshops/meetings with government departments Training workshops (eg., Aquacrop workshop) Project reports, briefs, factsheets-local languageProject brochure, project websiteScientific publications/journal articlesNational and regional Conference

  • Follow up Dec 2013-Nov 2014Annual progress report for 2013Planning for third year/Annual work plan (Dec 2013 to Nov 2014)Planned deliverables due in final year 2014Stakeholder workshop/conference -2014Annual workshop and meetings -2014 Training and capacity building activities 2014 Risks and deviationsBudget status
