The mapping includes analyzing the current scenario, stakeholders' interventions, government and financial institution programs, market conditions, and value chain analysis. The goal was to understand the challenges and barriers, develop financing models, and propose strategies and action plans for strengthening the rice value chain in these regions. The outputs included comprehensive reports, and baseline assessments for potential SDG7 interventions in paddy, aiming to foster technology innovation and improve livelihoods in the selected geographies.
