IRRI’s Response to COVID-19

The COVID-19 outbreak is causing immense challenges around the world, and is threatening to create significant disruptions in food and nutrition security for billions of people, especially the world’s poorest.

The International Rice Research Institute is in solidarity with the global community as we utilize our expertise and resources to address the myriad challenges brought about by the pandemic. Collaborating with countries, partners, and OneCGIAR, IRRI is committed to working towards ensuring food and nutrition security through rice-based agri-food systems during this crisis.

What we do

We are addressing five impact challenges faced by farmers, consumers, and stakeholders, in the world’s rice-producing countries.

Where we work

We work with key actors from these regions through our in-country offices to develop actionable research analyses and recommendations on country-specific agricultural initiatives.

Beyond these areas, we also work with other country partners through our global research programs and networks.
