CGIAR has launched a major new crop-focused global breeding research program that brings together its rice breeding Centers and national partners to accelerate research developing and delivering better varieties, faster.

Launched at a strategic planning meeting on January 24-25, 2024 in Dubai, UAE, the Global Rice Breeding Program (GRBP) aims to improve the quality of life of small-holding rice farmers and consumers in low- and middle-income countries.

This project is organized under the auspices of the CGIAR Genetic Innovation (GI) Science Group’s Plant Breeding and Pre-Breeding unit.
