Rice plays a defining role in Asia’s agroecosystems, as a crucial staple food and cash crop. Yet, rice fields are also a major source of methane emissions. Technologies have been developed to reduce rice fields emissions without compromising productivity. However, gaps in capacities hinder the scale-up of climate-smart rice cultivation technologies. Meanwhile, Asian countries highlighted adaptation and mitigation measures in rice landscapes in their NDCs under the Paris Agreement in acknowledgement of the challenges and opportunities of the agricultural sector in tackling climate change. This workshop aims to identify viable options for mitigation and adaptation in rice landscapes and develop scale-up strategies in support of national NDCs targets.
