SRP is delighted to launch the new SRP Assurance Scheme together with our very own eco-label to help consumers and global rice stakeholders choose sustainable rice.
Online Public Consultation
Both members and non-members of SRP are invited to participate in the 30-day online public consultation on the following documents, which will complement the SRP Assurance Scheme v 1.3 (to be released by 31 August):
We are grateful to all members of the SRP Chain of Custody Task Force for drafting these documents.
Interested respondents are encouraged to submit comments via the Comments Submission Form on or before 26 September 2020 to firstname.lastname@example.org. All comments and responses will be documented and posted to the SRP website in line with SRP's commitment to transparency.
With your support and participation, helping one million rice smallholders to adopt climate-smart, sustainable best farming practices is within reach!
Our online awareness campaign, tagged #AMillionThanks aims to broaden public awareness of the positive economic, environmental and social benefits of sustainable rice production by featuring 'messages of thanks' through the use of augmented reality (AR) camera filters on social media.
Join us in offering #AMillionThanks to all rice stakeholders who are promoting rice sustainability across the stakeholder spectrum - including project partners from public and private sectors, research and civil society, institutional funders, and most of all, rice farmers.
