Indonesia: CCARA holds third annual review and planning meeting

The Climate Change Adaptation in Rainfed Rice Areas (CCARA) project held its third annual review and planning meeting on 28-29 April 2013 in Bali, Indonesia. Research results were reviewed, issues discussed, and a work plan and experimental protocol drafted.

The importance of information-sharing and collaboration with other projects was a guiding theme for the activity, affirmed by David Johnson, CCARA project leader, and Tomoyuki Kawashima, program director for natural resource management of the Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences.

Thirty collaborators and observers from Laos, Indonesia, Japan, and the Philippines attended as participants.

Researchers and scientists from the Indonesian Agroclimate and Hydrology Research Institute, Indonesian Center for Agricultural Biotechnology and Genetic Resources Research and Development, Indonesian Center for Rice Research, and Assessment Institute for Agricultural Technology in Bali were also invited as presentors on the role of potential stakeholders in CCARA’s impact pathway. 

The CCARA project is an IRRI-Japan collaborative research project that aims to increase yield in rainfed rice areas through adoption of weather forecast systems, decision support systems, and improved varieties.
