Stop Golden Rice Network

What is Stop Golden Rice Network?

SGRN is a regional campaign network comprised of more than 30 organizations across Asia, geared towards strengthening network support and campaign collaboration against the onslaught of corporate control in food and agriculture. The network strives to lead the fight against Golden Rice in Asia.

Formed in 2014 during the Asian Conference against Golden Rice, the network aims primarily as a platform for information exchange, support, monitoring and coordination of initiatives of participants and organizations on the campaign against the introduction, field testing and commercialization of Golden Rice. Apart from campaigns, SGRN also identifies other collaborative activities that promote alternative farmer-led agriculture, such as sustainable and organic agriculture, seed conservation among others.

Strategies

  • Establish a strong local and regional peoples’ network that will monitor and will act to stop commercialization of Golden Rice and other kinds of GMOs
  • Establish a common platform for communication, support and exchange on matters related to developments and impacts of Golden Rice and other GMOs
  • Lobby local governments to stop field releases of GMOs and to establish GM-free zones
