Bangladesh can achieve agricultural sustainability and resilience by adopting water management practices with synchronized cropping in the polders of the coastal zone.
Stage 3: Proof of Concept
Low productivity in the 1.2 million ha polder lands.
Hydrologically bounded, community-led water management is the key for wide-scale adoption of improved rice-based production systems in the polders of coastal Bangladesh.
The climate vulnerable communities of coastal Bangladesh
The innovation addresses year-round productivity by utilizing available land and water resources. The innovation is highly productive, profitable and climate resilient, productivity and income is almost double than other innovations.
