AfricaRice teams up with national partners to sustainably intensify rice-based systems in Africa

The Africa Rice Center (AfricaRice), in close collaboration with national partners, has launched a high-potential project in which research will be put into effective use to improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers in Africa by promoting a range of sustainable intensification and diversification innovations for rice-based systems, while reducing their environmental footprint.

The project titled ‘Sustainable and Diversified Rice-based Farming Systems’ is conducted under the ‘Putting Research into Use for Nutrition, Sustainable Agriculture and Resilience (PRUNSAR)’ program co-funded by the European Union (EU) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
