The Forages for Smallholder Project (FSP) is a participatory research program in Southeast Asia that commenced in 1995. The focus of the project is to develop forage technologies in partnership with smallholder farmers in upland areas where forages have the potential to improve livestock feeding and management of natural resources. The FSP is funded by the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) and managed by Centro Internacional de Agricultura Tropical (CIAT) and CSIRO Australia. It involves a network of smallholder farmers, development workers and researchers in Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and Southern China.
