The RRVCP is an economic growth strategy for key member countries. The project aims to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, especially goals to End Poverty, achieve Zero Hunger and foster inclusive economic growth.

Rice is a staple food crop in all the five target countries of the RRVCP, and the project’s interventions would make the regional program contribute 10-20% of the annual rice demands of the target countries; reducing imports by at least 10%.

Impact Facts & Figures
