Rice farming in Thailand accounts for nearly 55% of the total greenhouse gas emissions of the agricultural sector and farm households increasingly face the negative impacts of climate change. In view of this , the rice sector needs well managed, national mitigation and adaptation actions as well as a database and reporting system for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and their reduction.
Thailand ratified the Paris Agreement in September 2016 and articulated national targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving resilience to climate change, known as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). TGCP – Agriculture supports Thailand in the assessment of mitigation and adaptation actions for the agricultural sector and in developing a Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system for GHG emissions of the rice sector.
