FAO and IRRI
IRRI’s early collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) dates back to events tied to the International Rice Year in 1966. In February 1983, IRRI and FAO jointly sponsored an important international workshop on the Judicious and Efficient Use of Insecticides on Rice. The two organizations worked together to put on the very successful International Year of Rice in 2004. As of 2014, FAO has engaged IRRI scientists to serve as consultants in 18 projects, for a total amount of USD 387,938.
