Seeds Without Borders is a regional seed policy agreement that speeds up the distribution of modern rice varieties across countries in Asia, particularly in South and Southeast Asia. In 2014, IRRI facilitated the agreement signed by India, Bangladesh, and Nepal. To date, the agreement also includes Bhutan, Cambodia, and Sri Lanka.
This year, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Fiji are joining the agreement. Fiji is the first Pacific Island nation to join Seeds Without Borders, marking the expansion of the agreement from South and Southeast Asia to the Pacific Islands.
