How we work

We drive scale, build capacity, facilitate market linkages and deliver real results through our solutions, services, and impacts. 

Here's what we do.

Drive Scale

The Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP) network comprises over 100 global public, private, research and civil society organizations. We foster multi-stakeholder partnerships to deliver proven solutions. We catalyze wide-scale adoption of climate-smart sustainable best practice through strategic institutional partnerships and consortia, including the Sustainable Rice Landscapes Initiative and national-level SRP Chapters to drive durable public-private-people partnerships.


The SRP Standard for Sustainable Rice Cultivation empowers farmers to adopt practicable and sustainable rice farming techniques, while the SRP Performance Indicators allow monitoring of impacts of adoption at several levels.


Through the SRP Assurance Scheme, we enable participating farmer groups to connect with buyers seeking sustainably produced rice with value chain transparency. Retailers can make credible public claims and create market differentiation through sustainable rice, while consumers can help small farmers and the environment directly by choosing SRP-Verified rice now on retailer shelves.


Aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the SRP Performance Indicators enable partners and researchers to quantify the economic, environmental, and social impacts of sustainable best practices in rice production and assess the potential synergies and tradeoffs among desirable outcomes.


SRP raises awareness of the importance of sustainably produced rice among producers and consumers. Through a range of channels, we inform, educate and explain why a sustainable global rice sector is good for people and planet.

Here's how we do it.

Our Solutions

We offer the global rice supply chain a set of tools to support large-scale adoption of sustainable, climate-smart best practices among rice smallholders.

Our Capabilities

We offer a range of range of support measures to facilitate adoption of climate-smart sustainable best practices, both directly and through our members and strategic partners.

Our Impacts

We measure benefits that are linked with shifting to sustainable practices to understand what we've achieved - and to show what we can achieved if we continue to scale.
