Africa Rice Center (AfricaRice)
A CGIAR research center and
pan-African association of member countries
Importance of rice in SSA
Fastest growing food staple:
Demand growing at > 6% per year – faster than any other food staple
Strategic for food security:
Most important energy source in W Africa & Madagascar and 2nd most important in
Africa
Impact on economies:
Local production covers about 60% of demand (imports per year at >US$ 5 billion)
Important for women:
Main labor force in SSA’s rainfed ecologies (sowing to processing & marketing)
Viable career for youth:
The rice sector can employ many of the 17 million young people who enter SSA’s
job market.
Huge potential:
Africa has resources to produce enough quality rice to feed itself and to export

• Rice imports into Africa
showed signs of stabilization
at about 8 million tons before
2010
• But resurgence of high rice
imports since 2011
Imports
• AfricaRice and partners have developed
a strategic plan (2011-2020) to boost
rice production in SSA
• This plan was approved by AfricaRice
Council of Ministers in 2011.
• The Strategic Plan is being implemented
with many partners across the research
to development continuum.
• Vision: increase rice self-sufficiency
ratio to almost 90% in 2020 leading to a
reduction in imports of about 5 million t
per year
AfricaRice 2011-2020 Strategic Plan
Brief history of AfricaRice

Ministers
• 2013: Total of 25 member countries across Africa
• Mar 2015: Board decides to return HQ to Côte d’Ivoire in phases
• Sep 2015: Management & support services begin operations from new
HQ building in Abidjan (offered by Ivorian Gov.)
• July-Sep 2016: 1st wave of scientists to return to M’bé
• 2017: 2nd and final wave of scientists to return to M’bé
Vision and priorities
• Vision
– A pan-African center of excellence for rice research,
development and capacity strengthening
• Priorities
– Strengthening partnerships
– Developing capacity of rice value chain actors, including youth and
women
– Adopting innovation platform (IP) approaches in rice value chain
– Improving access of rice producers to markets
– Integrating rice science in the policy agenda of countries
– Increasing investments in research for development of the rice
sector
Key role
• Produces international public goods (knowledge,
technologies and policy advice) relating to rice for Africa
• Provides technical support and advises member States on
critical rice production and marketing issues
• Builds capacity through rice task forces
• Concentrates R&D efforts in rice hubs set up across Africa
• Mobilizes global knowledge through Global Rice Science
Partnership
• Promotes uptake of research products through links with
development activities
• Holds largest rice collection in Africa (more than 19,620
accessions)

Achievement highlights: varieties
> 200 improved rice varieties released in last 30 years in Africa:
• High-performing and climate-smart ‘ARICA’ varieties
– ARICA 1 to ARICA 5: About 15-30% higher yield than NERICAs
– ARICA 6 to ARICA 11: Stress-tolerant (iron toxicity, cold, salinity) high-yielding
• Popular ‘NERICA’ varieties
• Area under upland NERICAs : 1.4 million ha in 2013.
• NERICA adoption has lifted about 8 million people out of poverty in 16 countries
• High-yielding ‘Sahel’ varieties for irrigated ecologies
• In Senegal, average yield increased by 872 kg per ha and incomes by $227 per
cropping season. Present value of net benefits of Sahel adoption $ 24.6 million
• Hybrids
• More than 50 hybrids developed by AfricaRice show 15-20% yield advantage
compared with inbred check. Two hybrids selected for release in Senegal in
2016. New set of hybrids being tested in several countries..

Crop management decision support tool:
RiceAdvice
• Allows rice farmers to apply mineral fertilizer more
efficiently to optimize production and profits and
reduce waste
• Helps rice farmers identify the best option for
fertilizers to be purchased, based on nutrient
requirement and fertilizer prices
• Farmers can increase rice yield by about 20%
and increase their profit margin by about $200
per hectare per season
Improved land & water management
Smart-valleys approach
• A low-cost, participatory and sustainable
approach to develop inland valleys for
rice-based systems
• Major advantages: increased water
retention in farmers’ fields, less risk of
fertilizer losses due to flooding and
increased rice yields
• In Togo and Benin, average rice yields
of farmers using Smart-valleys approach
more than doubled from 1.5–2 to 3.5–
4.5 t/ha
• Impact studies indicate the potential
adoption rate is 67%
Mechanization
• Motorized weeders
• Threshers
• Combine harvesters
Improved rice processing - GEM rice parboiler
• An improved rice parboiling system called GEM, combined with
training and innovation platform approach: improving the livelihood of
more than a 1000 rural women in Benin
• It is energy-efficient, shortens processing time, reduces drudgery, and
does not expose the women parboilers to heat burns
• With GEM, average monthly quantity of parboiled rice produced as
well as the average monthly income from this activity more than
doubled
Milling machine
Decision support: weed management
• Total rice production
losses attributable to
weeds in SSA estimated
at US$ 1.5 billion
• Tool for identifying major
rice weeds of Africa
• Valuable resource for
professionals involved in
research, training and
management of rice
weeds in SSA

Private sector: partners for scaling up
• Bringing together small-to-medium (SMEs) seed
enterprises and scientists
• Collaborating with private sector on certified rice seed
production
• FASO KABA in Mali,
• NASECO Seed Company in partnership with
NARO in Uganda;
• NAFASO in Burkina Faso
• ASI thresher manufacturing in partnership with
private sector/SME blacksmiths in Nigeria, Cote
d’Ivoire, Senegal
Youth entrepreneurship in rice value chain:
conceptual framework
• Competence and skills
for youths and women in
agribusiness enhanced
• Significant return on
investment when
improved rice
technologies, innovations
and services are combined
• Coaching & mentoring
youth and women to take
lead role in modernizing
the rice sector

AfricaRice reviving rice sector in West
Africa under World Bank facilitated WAAPP
Liberia
• Aromatic rice produced, processed and
packaged in Liberia ready for market
• National scientists and extension staff
trained in breeding, land & water
management technologies, seed production
and data management
• Scholarships awarded to post-graduate
students on rice breeding
• Improved rice seed made available to
farmers to jump-start agriculture after Ebola
crisis
AfricaRice has a joint initiative with CORAF/WECARD to
produce breeder seed of improved varieties and conduct multi-
environment trials under the Africa-wide Rice Breeding Task
Force.

  • 7. Vision and priorities • Vision – A pan-African center of excellence for rice research, development and capacity strengthening • Priorities – Strengthening partnerships – Developing capacity of rice value chain actors, including youth and women – Adopting innovation platform (IP) approaches in rice value chain – Improving access of rice producers to markets – Integrating rice science in the policy agenda of countries – Increasing investments in research for development of the rice sector
  • 8. Key role • Produces international public goods (knowledge, technologies and policy advice) relating to rice for Africa • Provides technical support and advises member States on critical rice production and marketing issues • Builds capacity through rice task forces • Concentrates R&D efforts in rice hubs set up across Africa • Mobilizes global knowledge through Global Rice Science Partnership • Promotes uptake of research products through links with development activities • Holds largest rice collection in Africa (more than 19,620 accessions)

  • 13. Scalable innovations along the rice value chain
  • 14. Achievement highlights: varieties > 200 improved rice varieties released in last 30 years in Africa: • High-performing and climate-smart ‘ARICA’ varieties – ARICA 1 to ARICA 5: About 15-30% higher yield than NERICAs – ARICA 6 to ARICA 11: Stress-tolerant (iron toxicity, cold, salinity) high-yielding • Popular ‘NERICA’ varieties • Area under upland NERICAs : 1.4 million ha in 2013. • NERICA adoption has lifted about 8 million people out of poverty in 16 countries • High-yielding ‘Sahel’ varieties for irrigated ecologies • In Senegal, average yield increased by 872 kg per ha and incomes by $227 per cropping season. Present value of net benefits of Sahel adoption $ 24.6 million • Hybrids • More than 50 hybrids developed by AfricaRice show 15-20% yield advantage compared with inbred check. Two hybrids selected for release in Senegal in 2016. New set of hybrids being tested in several countries..
