Harvesting Ra Du rice, intercropped with Acacia

A Luoi district, Thua Thien Hue province, Vietnam. May 2019. The USAID Green Annamites Project supported Quang Nam and Thua Thien Hue provinces in Vietnam to reduce emissions and adopt green development strategies, by applying climate smart agricultural practices (CSA). The Project promotes establishing smart agricultural models that enhance the livelihoods of local communities and reduce emissions such as the application of the Integrated Crop Management (ICM) model on wet rice, vegetables and clean agriculture cultivation, restoration and development of local specialties such as Thanh Tra pomelo (Huong Van, TT Hue) and Ra Du rice (A Luoi, TT Hue). More than ten thousand people increased their income thanks to the sustainable agricultural models. The smart agricultural model created positive impact on the economic, social and environmental aspects while helped farmers to increase their productivity, income and adopt modern cultivation techniques to reduce production cost and increase their awareness on environmental protection.
