ASEAN and IRRI
Experts at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) based in the Philippines say that durable regional agreements on rice production and supply will shield the region from global food crises that may emerge from upheavals in market conditions.
Many ASEAN populations were badly hurt in the global food price crisis of 2007-09. ASEAN nations have since redoubled efforts to better manage domestic food supplies and shore up regional arrangements to share information with one another on cross-country stocks and prospects as well as curb volatility in rice and food prices.
