Open Public Consultation: Thailand National Interpretation Guidelines of the SRP Standard for Sustainable Rice Cultivation
The Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP) is initiating a public consultation period for the Thailand National Interpretation Guidelines (NIG) of the SRP Standard for Sustainable Rice Cultivation in line with the Protocol for Development of SRP National Interpretation Guidelines. This consultation presents a valuable opportunity for stakeholders to contribute their expertise and insights to help shape the future of sustainable rice production in Thailand.
What are the Thailand NIG?
The Thailand NIG have been developed by the SRP National Chapter Thailand to contextualize and tailor the SRP Standard to the specific conditions and challenges of rice cultivation in Thailand. These guidelines provide a practical framework for farmers, millers, and other stakeholders to implement sustainable practices across the rice value chain.
Purpose of the consultation
Input and feedback from stakeholders will play a pivotal role in refining the Thailand NIG and ensuring its alignment with local priorities, knowledge, and best practices. This collaborative effort will ultimately contribute to sustainability and resilience of the Thai rice sector, benefiting farmers, communities, and the environment.
