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
