Introducing Palayamanan in Rainfed Ecosystems Using the CPAR Approach: A Framework of Analysis
CSPPS WP No. 2018-02
Rainfed rice farmers are challenged by repeated occurrences of drought and crop failure and the literature states that crop diversification may be one possible way of building resilient agricultural communities. Cognizant of this, the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) conceptualized and established the first Palayamanan project in 2010. This project introduced a diversified integrated rice-based farming system to help rice farmers enhance their income and productivity. This paper describes the framework of analysis and the study site selection process and gives an
overview of the results.
