In-season Paddy Yield Forecasting (Summer 2015) using CRAFT in Nepal

This is a joint product of the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MoAD), World Food Programme (WFP), and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS). 

The CCAFS Regional Agriculture Forecasting Toolbox (CRAFT) is being piloted as part of the Nepal Food Security Monitoring System (NeKSAP) and is a new initiative to incorporate crop yield forecasting in Nepal with technical support from CCAFS South Asia. CRAFT was used to estimate paddy production in Nepal over the 2015 season. 

This report relies on information provided through different agencies, including the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), International Water Management Institute (IWMI), International Research Institute for Climate and Society, Columbia University, Nepal Agriculture Research Council (NARC), Department of Agriculture, MoAD and WFP. 

An earlier publication, A Report on CRAFT Implementation for In-season Wheat Yield Forecasting (Winter 2014/15) in Nepal, is also available on the NeKSAP website.
