Location: Field Office in Suphanburi Province
According to Thailand´s 2015 Biennial Update Report under UNFCCC, agriculture is responsible for approximately one-fifth of Thailand´s total GHG emissions, and is thereby the second largest emitting sector after the energy sector. Rice cultivation is particularly important, as it is cultivated on roughly half of all agricultural land in Thailand, and accounts for more than half of emissions from agriculture. Thailand is the world’s 4th largest emitter of rice-related GHG – mainly methane, particularly in irrigated rice production, flooding of paddy fields leads to significant emissions of CH4, which has a global warming potential 28 times higher than CO2.
A lack of incentives and knowledge is currently preventing farmers from adopting low-emission rice production practices, which include more advanced and capital-intensive field practices necessary for GHG mitigation. In addition, there are very few service providers for mitigation services in rice production. Other systemic barriers include gaps in existing national standards and regulations with respect to climate change mitigation in agriculture, and a lack of suitable large-scale (financial) incentive mechanisms to target the whole rice value chain or the larger agriculture sector.
Thai Rice NAMA Project
To overcome these barriers, Thai Rice NAMA, funded by the NAMA Facility, will enable a shift towards low-emission rice production in Thailand (outcome) through a combination of three core components which are 1) enabling farmers to implement low-emission rice farming, 2) supporting entrepreneurs in providing mitigation services to farmers, and 3) policy formulation and supporting measures promoting low-emission production at the national political level. The project will reach out to 100,000 farmer households in the six central plains provinces, namely, Chainat, Ang-thong, Pathum Thani, Singburi, Ayutthaya, Suphanburi (CAPSAS).
The main project implementing partners include the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE) – in particular the Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning (ONEP) – and the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (MoAC). Under MoAC, the Rice Department is a major sectoral partner. The Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives (BAAC), a public development bank operating under the Ministry of Finance (MoF), will administer the project’s financial mechanism. The project will start in July 2018 and operate until June 2023.
