The overall objective of the regional technical assistance (RETA) is to support the development and dissemination of water-saving rice production technologies in selected South Asian countries (Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and Pakistan), where productivity and profitability of rice farming is affected by drought and water shortage.
The main objectives of the RETA are to: (i) enhance rice productivity in water-short regions; (ii) improve water use efficiency in rice production resulting in better environmental conditions; and (iii) strengthen the national research capacities to develop water-saving rice technologies.
