As part of Peace Corps’ West Africa System of Rice Intensification (SRI) Toolkit, this handbook is designed for Peace Corps programming and training staff to assist with planning and executing SRI training programs, and any PCVs who are also involved in the planning and execution of these trainings. The SRI Toolkit also includes sample session plans and accompanying presentations, as separate files. In addition to this SRI Trainer Handbook, the toolkit also includes an SRI PCV Handbook. These two handbooks are designed to play complementary roles:
- The SRI PCV Handbook provides a detailed description of SRI, its principles, practices, and implementation, and is designed to be a resource for PCVs at post as they plan, design, and execute a first season of SRI trials with their counterparts.
- The SRI Trainer Handbook provides instruction on how to set up and execute training and explain SRI to training participants.
