The Global Rice Science Partnership (GRiSP), an initiative of the CGIAR, provides a single strategic plan and unique new partnership platform for impact-oriented rice research for development – it is designed to more effectively solve development challenges.

It streamlines current rice research for development activities of the CGIAR and aligns it with more than 900 rice research and development partners worldwide to:

  • increase rice productivity and value for the poor
  • foster more sustainable rice-based production
  • help rice farmers adapt to climate change
  • improve the efficiency and equity of the rice sector


GRiSP’s mission is to reduce poverty and hunger, improve human health and nutrition, reduce the environmental footprint, and enhance the ecosystem resilience of rice production systems through high-quality international rice research, partnership, and leadership.
