Corantijn canal (Stephan Mantel)

ISRIC participated in a project that aimed to strengthen the rice sector in Surinam.

The project area was in the North-western polders of Nickerie along the Corantijn canal.
ISRIC contributed to the environmental base line inventory for land use and management decision support. One of the products is a suitability map of the MCP polders with land use and management options.
 

ISRIC also helped to train local staff.
