SEARCA PBS 2020-1: Salinity and drought significantly affect rice production, adopting Good Agricultural Practices is a key solution: Some insights for Mekong River Delta, Vietnam

What are the economic consequences of drought and salinization? What can farmers do to effectively respond to salinization and ensure farm production is maximized? Overall, salinization, as exacerbated by several climate change-related hazards, has been significantly affecting rice production in the Mekong River Delta, a major rice production region in Vietnam. But there is a solution—massive promotion of Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) in cultivating rice in coastal saline environment among farmers up to a level that it has achieved significant and wider strategic adoption.
