FSG-Syngenta Rice Bowl Index

RBI 2016

The Rice Bowl Index is a joint initiative between Frontier Strategy Group, Syngenta, and an advisory board of prominent thought leaders. It facilitates positive, productive dialogue, collaboration, and action between governments, the private sector, and other key stakeholders in the area of food security. It assesses how robust a country’s capacity is to address the challenges of food security (but it is not a measure of a country’s actual level of food security).

The Rice Bowl Index consists of:

  • A quantitative component, which is a modular diagnostic platform that examines the key enablers and disablers of food security, built on FSG’s FrontierView Platform
  • A qualitative component in the form of a white paper authored by Professor Paul Teng, one of Asia’s leading food security experts
