      Paddy rice was converted to its milled equivalent using a conversion ratio of 0. The Sahelian irrigated environment Irrigated rice in the Sahel forms the second most important rice-producing environment in West Africa, coveringha 7. As a result, the rice-growing period is directly related to distance from the ocean, varying between less than 4 months in the nearest estuaries to more than 6 months in those more distant. New varieties are now being released in a number of countries.

      The privatization of the government-managed rice commodity chain has also allowed the emergence and fast growth of small-scale processing units in place of parastatal industrial mills. Photograph: Alamy Educating girls gives them the freedom to make decisions to improve their lives, which has deep social implications. They have medium to long grains that are translucent and not sticky when cooked. Breeding programs are being more closely aligned with market requirements and disease resistance is a high priority in variety selection. However, for this potential to be realized, governments need to support the introduction of farm machines and new varieties and build local capacity to support their farmers.

      The Forum for African Women Educationalists FAWE in Malawi is one organisation implementing life-skills education with women mentors, who are also providing menstrual pads. The widening gap between regional supply and demand has been met by imports. Every year 15 million girls under the age of 18 are married. Similarly, as men work at greater distances from their homes in the urban setting, a greater proportion of meals is consumed from the market, where the ease of rice preparation has given it a distinct advantage. Potential yields in unfavorable lowlands are around 2. It can also be noted that mobility in and out of markets has increased over time: The share of households that stopped or reduced their sale of rice between and is similar to the share that started or increased the sale of rice during this time period.

Rice is grown on relatively flat fields with surrounding bunds or levy banks to maintain water in the fields. Giving girls access to schooling is a central part of eradicating Programme achievement poverty, according to the World Bankwhich says better educated women tend to be healthier, participate more in formal labour markets, have fewer children and marry later.

These questions were tackled by a panel of experts from the non-profit, academic and private sectors, at a Guardian roundtable event in New York, chaired by Guardian journalist Anna Leach and supported by anti-poverty NGO Opportunity International.

To investigate the distributional consequences of production changes, two distributional dimension variables, viz. As a result, the rice-growing period is directly related to distance from the ocean, varying between less than 4 months in the nearest estuaries to more than 6 months in those more distant.

In this article, we focus on the rice-growing households in the survey, defined as those that grew rice in both and These range from macro-level variables, being estimates of the effects of national policies related to the individual countries, to the most important determinants of production at household level, including technological drivers of intensification and commercialization variables.

How Can West Africa Achieve Rice Self

Programme achievement Data source: [ 2257 ] Full size image Fig. Over longer time periods, which span from the reference year to and from the reference year torespectively, very few stopped or reduced their sales, suggesting that market exit was temporary.

As a result, yields are among the lowest in the region, and highly variable across sites and years. However, the explanation for the relatively high expenditure share in Malawi is principally due to the agricultural input subsidy programmes run in the country [ 31 ].

The remainder is managed by a growing and increasingly dynamic private sector. What was the Impact of the Project? The large technical potential for area expansion is constrained primarily by high investment costs. Continuous cropping is also being used in many areas because of insufficient water availability.

Child marriage A key obstacle to girls participating in school life is child marriage. New varieties are now being released in a number of countries. This suggests that the overall production increase observed for the panel as such, although minimal, is due to a mixed pattern of extensification and intensification.

FAO and AfricaRice call for investing in sustainable and inclusive rice production

Current yields in rainfed fields are 1. Other major staples include maize, millet, sorghum, and wheat. Although there is large scope for area expansion regionally, in locations where access to good arable soils is limited, expansion of Programme achievement rice cultivation can occur only by shifting out of other crops, by reducing the fallow period, or by exploiting soils less well suited to rice cultivation.

In West Africa, adaptation to lowland systems was highly successful.Farmer impact to support scaling partners to achieve impact for smallholder farmers. These investments are often in either public or private sector platforms that provide multiple services to farmers, like self-help groups in India or producer collectives in West Africa.
