Contribute to Better Rice Production and Nutrition
in South East Asia

Better Rice Initiative Asia aims to foster the cooperation between private and public sector institutions to promote sustainable growth in agricultural production and improved access to nutrition within the food sector in emerging and developing countries. Public and private actors join forces in order to implement comprehensive projects and programs for sustainable business in these countries. The contribution towards food and nutrition security as well as economic development in rural areas is to be measured by increased agricultural productivity and income, improved availability of nutritious food, and food self-sufficiency.

BRIA seeks to improve rice value chains and rice based nutrition in four Southeast Asian (SEA) countries, namely Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam. The approach also allows for covering regional cross-border value chains.
