The goals of the Climate and Clean Air (CCAC) Agriculture Initiative are to disseminate best practices for minimizing emissions of short-lived climate pollutants (SLCPs) from agriculture while also enhancing food security and livelihoods and meeting cross-sectoral climate change objectives. The purpose of the paddy rice component of the CCAC Agriculture Initiative is to produce technical and policy guidance for national governments to implement SLCP and other greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation options at large scales in paddy rice systems while maintaining or improving rice yields. The paddy rice program will target one country as a regional hub in each of Southeast Asia (Vietnam), South Asia (Bangladesh), and Latin America (Colombia) to develop initiatives for up-scaling mitigation at the national level. Up-scaling may entail engaging the private sector and government technical support programs as well as conducting outreach and public awareness campaigns with nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that work primarily with farmers.
