Agroecology GMS Report Oct2014

The study reported in this document aimed at assessing the feasibility of a regional project promoting agro‐ecological principles and practices in the Great Mekong Sub‐region ‐GMS‐ countries: Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, and Yunnan‐China. The study has taken stock of the practices, actors, experiments (e.g. success stories, constraints to adoption) related to agro‐ecology in the Mekong countries. A review of the literature was combined with country‐based consultation workshops (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam) and expert surveys (Thailand, Yunnan‐China). During the workshops and consultations, preliminary results from the initial desk studies have been presented and discussed with key stakeholders of agro‐ecology in each country. By addressing the whole range of agro‐ecological practices such as conservation agriculture, but also agro‐forestry, SRI, integrated agriculture, organic agriculture…, the study identified a whole range of research organizations, government agencies, NGOs, private companies with a diversity of experiences and expertise in agro‐ecology.
