Rapid Food Production Enhancement Programme (RaFPEP)

Rapid Food Production Enhancement Programme (RaFPEP)

The programme will support the government's 2009-2013 Rice Self-Sufficiency Plan, a nationwide effort to regain self-sufficiency in rice production and to respond to the food price crisis that emerged in 2008. IFAD's investment will provide support for securing good quality seed to boost rice production and for rehabilitating and developing irrigation works.

The programme includes two sub-programmes that are separate but mutually dependent:

  • the Rapid Seed Supply Financing Project (RaSSFiP), to be implemented in 2009
  • the Irrigated Rice Production Enhancement Project (IRPEP), to be implemented from 2010 to 2015

The programme targets poor paddy farmers and poor irrigators' associations in various rice-growing areas, with the objective of achieving an increase in paddy production.

The RaSSFiP will focus on acquisition and distribution of certified seeds for the 2009 wet season crop. IRPEP will work in the longer-term to:

  • strengthen irrigation associations
  • provide production inputs and support services
  • develop and maintain irrigation and rural infrastructure
  • develop marketing and the post-harvest stage of production
  • promote policy dialogue


IFAD will directly supervise the programme, which is an innovative combination of emergency assistance and a development project. It brings together an urgent response to prevent an emergency, by supplying seeds rapidly to increase paddy production, and a medium-term irrigation rehabilitation effort that aims at increased and sustained production. Through the financial package, IFAD will provide funds for the urgent phase and play a catalytic role in further financing. And IFAD's support for the government's sector-wide programme enables both IFAD and the government to fast-track processing, providing a potential model for future initiatives.
