Secure the future of rice

IRRI’s research is sustained by funding support from governments, philanthropic foundations, private sector, international agencies, and through the CGIAR. These entities enable and sustain IRRI’s work toward reducing poverty, hunger, and malnutrition. It is also through their continued support that we are able to promote sustainable rice production in the regions where we are present.

Your investment in IRRI’s research can help sustain the food, livelihood, and nutrition needs of rice-dependent populations. Be among our trusted global investors and partners.
