report Africa Rice Center

Rice is playing a key role in providing food security for the poorest categories of rural and urban populations in Africa. It is the leading provider of food calories in West Africa and in Madagascar, and is now the second largest source of food energy in sub-Saharan Africa as a whole.

AfricaRice is pleased to announce the release of its Annual Report 2011, which provides compelling highlights of the work carried out by the Center and its partners to sustainably boost the rice sector in Africa by bringing rice research and development to the aid of Africa’s poor.
