Mitigation options to reduce methane emissions in paddy rice

Mitigation options to reduce methane emissions in paddy rice

CCAC aims to implement the alternate wetting and drying (AWD) technology, on large-scale, in Vietnam, Bangladesh, and Colombia to significantly reduce methane emissions from rice fields. With support from CCAFS, IRRI coordinates the activities of this component in Vietnam and Bangladesh, while CIAT covers the work in Colombia.

Introducing non-flooded crops in rice-dominated landscapes: Impact on carbon, nitrogen, and water cycles

Incentives for 'No-regret' mitigation

The project aims to develop an innovative approach based on highlighting co-benefits of mitigation options, integrating alternate wetting and drying (AWD) into a farming strategy, as opposed to approaches focusing on emissions reductions only.

Standard Assessment of Agricultural Potential Livelihoods (SAMPLES) Project

SAMPLES addresses the dearth of reliable information about greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture in tropical countries. SAMPLES scientists work with developing countries to improve data on agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and mitigation potentials. The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) coordinates SAMPLES in collaboration with CGIAR centers and scientists, and global and regional partners.

Introducing non-flooded crops in rice-dominated landscapes: Impact on carbon, nitrogen, and water cycles

Introducing non-flooded crops in rice-dominated landscapes: Impact on carbon, nitrogen, and water cycles (ICON)

ICON explores and quantifies the ecological consequences of future changes in rice production. The goal is to provide understanding in balancing the revenues and environmental impacts of high yielding rice cropping systems. 



Greenhouse gas Mitigation in Irrigated Rice Systems in Asia

Greenhouse gas Mitigation in Irrigated Rice Systems in Asia (MIRSA)

The project seeks to develop an improved water management, based on alternate wetting and drying (AWD), that can always reduce soil-derived CO2-eq emissions (CH4 + N2O) during the rice growing season from irrigated rice paddies, by 30% compared to the conventional practice.
