Our Impacts

Our Theory of Change for transforming rice

The SRP Theory of Change (TOC) is built on the SRP Vision, to “Feed the world. Sustainably” which conveys the SRP’s aspiration to catalyze transformation and change in the global rice sector to benefit producers, consumers and the environment.

The TOC (through the infographic and supporting narrative document) describes outcomes and long-term goals (impacts) which SRP is aiming to achieve. It illustrates how the strategies and activities implemented by SRP improve the livelihoods of rice smallholders and empower farmers to be active in the change process. The model allows SRP members and partners from across sectors and from around the world to help drive change through sustainable and traceable value chains. At the core of the SRP Theory of Change is the continuous improvement of the sector to achieve higher social, economic and environmental performance.
