The current and future food security of South Asian countries has twin challenges of resource fatigue and decelerating productivity growth of food grain crops. Realizing the importance of these issues not only at national level but also at regional level, the regional NARS (Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan), CGIAR centres and the key donors together launched a common regional platform as Rice-Wheat Consortium for the Indo-Gangetic Plains (RWC) in May 1994 which is led by NARS and facilitated by CGIAR centres in the region. The RWC acted as catalysing platform to promote the technologies to address the key challenges of RWCS in the region.
