Rice is the daily staple for more than 3.5 billion people, accounting for 19% of dietary energy globally.

Rice farmers are among the world's most vulnerable to climate change impacts such as rising sea levels, salinity, temperature rise, drought and flooding.

Rice production needs to increase by 25% in the next 25 years to meet global demand. -IRRI

SRP Performance Indicators Revision

Period: 12 November to 11 December

The Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP) Performance Indicators was launched in 2015, together with the SRP Standard for Sustainable Rice Cultivation. The 12 indicators are designed to support the Standard by measuring changes resulting from adoption of on-farm sustainable best practice, such as through compliance with the SRP Standard, or other interventions of interest to SRP members.

This tool is now undergoing revision, in line with the protocol provided by ISEAL. The revision process is intended as a review of the revised SRP Performance Indicators version 1.6 (November 2018), which was prepared by IRRI, with an aim of proposing new levels and areas of measuring data.
