Thailand: Emergency assistance to support the recovery of agriculture-based livelihoods systems of flood- affected farmers

Floods and droughts pose the greatest threat to Thailand agriculture, influencing the entire country with varying degrees of risk. Thailand was severely affected by the floods since mid-August 2011, which was mainly caused by the heavy and long duration of rains in Northern, Central and North Eastern regions. The objective of this project (TCP/THA/3306 E), is to complement the rehabilitation efforts of the Government of Thailand through the provision of livestock inputs to the most risk and vulnerable flood-affected smallholder farmers in 8 provinces of Region 1. Furthermore, the project will provide training and technical advice to livestock farmers in disaster risk reduction and management to reduce their vulnerability to future disasters. The desired outcome of the project is to enable flood-affected farmers to go back to their farming activities as soon as possible.

Bangladesh, Myanmar and Thailand: Asia-Pacific Dairy Strategy Project

Improved market access and smallholder participation for sustainable dairy development (CFC/FIGMDP/16FT) There are a number of successful models, and some not-so-successful, where smallholder dairy farmers have gained sustainable access to local markets. Given the clear opportunitiesfor dairying in Asia, APHCA has asked FAO to develop a dairy development strategy for the Asia-Pacific region to lift the involvement of smallholders. The Common Fund for Commodities (CFC) has agreed to fund a preparatory project to develop the strategy.
