Podcast: IRRI's Sushil Pandey on the future of rice

...
Sushil Pandey, IRRI senior economist
As a prelude to ATM special issue on Rice, where we profile the future of a crop that feeds over 3 billion of the world's population, International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) senior economist Sushil Pandey stopped by LKY recently to give a talk on "strategic research and policy issues for food security" with reference to rice. Insights can be gleamed by listening to the podcasthere.
Sushil was promoting IRRI's new book "Rice in the global economy: strategic reseach and policy issues for food security" (click here to download). The book presents a new vision for the future of rice farming and addresses key strategic questions for food security in the context of major developments in the global economy. Sushil and co authors reckon that we'll see increasing diversification of rice farming (farmers growing other, more profitable crops), a declining share of rice as a percentage of farmer's incomes, increasing input costs (especially labour) in the future, as well as the yet unknown effects of climate change on rice production. The challenge, he says, will be to link up those millions of plots of land (farmers with < than 3 acres), to supply chains that distribute rice to areas where there are deficits (i.e. food insecure areas).

Sushil Pandey, senior economist at IRRI, explained that though the country is the second largest exporter of rice in the world, many poor upland farmers are not able to produce enough to feed themselves and their families. They cannot buy rice in the market because they do not have enough money or the rice brought in from these surplus deltas becomes quite expensive due to high cost of transportation to these remote uplands

Simply put, marginal uplands are trapped in a vicious cycle of low food produc!vity, poverty, and environmental degradation. So, the nagging issue is, "How could one break the shackle of hunger brought by poverty in marginal uplands?"
The project Managing Landscapes in the Marginal Uplands for Household Food Security and Environmental Sustainability (IFAD TAG706) was conceived by the team, led by Dr. Pandey, for finding solutions to the dire conditions in the uplands. Its goal was crystal clear: to improve household food security of poor farmers in the marginal uplands of South and Southeast Asia through more productive technologies, thereby contribu!ng to poverty alleviation while protecting these fragile environments.

"When farmers' household food security is achieved, then they can start to consider options that will increase and diversify their income such as growing cash crops and raising livestock," said Dr. Pandey.

"Essentially, the project was designed to work with the farmers to develop op!ons suited to their specific situation," said Dr. Pandey.
