The Global Rice Science Partnership (GRiSP), which is the CGIAR Research Program on Rice, represents orthe rst time ever a single strategic and work plan or global rice research. GRiSP brings together hundredso scientists to embark on the most comprehensive attempt ever to harness the power o science to solvethe pressing development challenges o the 21st century. Cutting-edge science is deployed to developnew rice varieties with high yield potential and tolerance o a variety o stresses such as fooding, salinity,drought, soil problems, pests, weeds, and diseases. Improved natural resource management practices willallow armers to ully realize the benets o such new varieties on a sustainable basis while protecting theenvironment. Future rice production systems are designed to adapt to climate change and to mitigate theimpacts o global warming. Policies conducive to the adoption o new varieties and cropping systems willbe designed to acilitate the realization o development outcomes. GRiSP will train uture rice scientistsand strengthen the capacity o advisory systems to reach millions o armers. For impact at scale, GRiSPscientists collaborate with hundreds o development partners rom the public and private sector across theglobe.GRiSP was launched in 2010 and is coordinated by three members o the CGIAR Consortium—the In-ternational Rice Research Institute (IRRI, the lead institute), Arica Rice Center (AricaRice), the InternationalCenter or Tropical Agriculture (CIAT)—and three other leading agricultural agencies with an internationalmandate and with a large portolio on rice: Centre de Cooperation lnternationale en Recherche Agronom-ique pour le Développement (Cirad), L’lnstitut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD), and the JapanInternational Research Center or Agricultural Sciences (JIRCAS). Together, they align and bring to the tableconsortia, networks, platorms, programs, and collaborative projects with over 900 partners rom the gov-ernment, nongovernment, public, private, and civil society sectors.The responsibility or this publication rests solely with the Global Rice Science Partnership.
