Apr 1977, Bangkok (Thailand), as Regional Network for Agricultural Machinery (RNAM), following studies, 1968-1972, by the then Asian Industrial Development Council (AIDC). Executed by United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), with technical assistance from Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and International Rice Research Institute (IRRI). Office established at Los Baños (Philippines), June 1978. Replaced by Centre for Sustainable Agricultural Mechanization (CSAM).

Aims

Increase agricultural mechanization in the Asia and Pacific region through studies, selection, design and development, adaptation and use of suitable agricultural machinery with conscious and deliberate efforts to promote local manufacture, increase agricultural output and labour productivity and improve the working conditions and income of farmers in the Participating Countries. The immediate objectives of RNAM Project are: identification and improvement of the national agricultural mechanization policies and strategies in each Participating Country and ensuring that the strategy is implemented; strengthening of the capability of Participating Countries to develop tools and machines in the field of food and feed crop seeding and planting, harvesting, threshing, drying and milling; strengthening of the capabilities of the Participating Countries in manufacturing technology to ensure effective and efficient local manufacture of quality agricultural machinery and demonstration with eventual adoption of appropriate technology in selected districts/villages of each Participating Country.
