In fact in the Philippines, there is an organisation called International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) solely dedicated to improving rice for human consumption. Our guest, Ms Aileen Garcia is a Development Communication (DEVCOM) Practitioner who is the manager and project coordinator of the “”Healthier Rice” and “Golden Rice” stakeholder advocacy project, helping to get multi-sector support for this new, enhanced and nutrient-filled variety of rice. I chatted with Ayie to understand her role in the process and what “healthier” rice means for us.
