The Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP) is a global multi-stakeholder partnership to promote resource efficiency and sustainability both on-farm and throughout the rice value chain. The initiative was co-convened by UN Environment and the International Rice Research Institute in December 2011, and works in collaboration with over 70 institutional partners in the public and private sectors as well as the research and NGO communities.

Each year, the alliance brings together its members and dialogue partners to discuss collaborative approaches and innovative solutions to critical sustainability challenges facing the rice sector.

We are therefore pleased to issue this First Announcement for the 2017 Global Sustainable Rice Conference and Exhibition, organized by the Sustainable Rice Platform, in collaboration with UN Environment and the International Rice Research Institute, from 4 -5 October at the UN Convention Centre, Bangkok.

Conference tracks include:

  • Global Rice Market and Food Security
  • Economic and Financial Incentives for Sustainability
  • Farm Management and Technology Tools
  • Sustainable Rice Standards and Indicators
  • Supply Chain Assurance Models
  • Innovations in Crop Protection
