Welcome to the Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP)

The Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP) is a multi-stakeholder partnership to promote resource efficiency and sustainability both on-farm and throughout the rice value chain. SRP was co-convened by the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) and the International Rice Research Institute in December 2011, and works in collaboration with partners in the public and private sectors as well as the NGO community.

What we do

The SRP pursues public policy development and voluntary market transformation initiatives to provide private, non-profit and public actors in the global rice sector with sustainable production standards and outreach mechanisms that contribute to increasing the global supply of affordable rice, improved livelihoods for rice producers and reduced environmental impact of rice production.

The SRP focuses on development and testing of sustainability guidelines, standards, tools and outreach models for sustainable rice production and processing, including decision making tools and quantitative sustainability impact indicators.

The work is coordinated by a Secretariat based at UNEP’s Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, Bangkok, and is overseen by an Advisory Committee.


Our goals

By the end of 2016, SRP aims to offer the global rice supply chain a proven system of sustainability standards, practices, and alternative incentive mechanisms to facilitate wide-scale adoption of sustainable best practices in rice.

Vision of Success

The Sustainable Rice Platform adopts the 2035 vision of success defined by the Global Rice Science Partnership (GRiSP), as follows:

·Expenditures on rice by those under the $1.25 (PPP) poverty line would decline by PPP $11 billion annually (holding consumption constant).

·Counting those reductions as income gains means that 150 million people would be lifted above the $1.25 poverty line, reducing the global number of poor by 11%.

·As a result of increased availability and reduced prices, 62 million undernourished people could reach caloric sufficiency in Asia, reducing hunger in the region by 12%.

·Nearly 1 billion tons of CO2 equivalent emissions will be averted.
