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.
