On November 14 I saw the flag of IRRI (International Rice Research Institute), which "is an international research and training organization established in 1960 by the Ford and Rockefeller foundations with support from the Philippine government. It aims to reduce poverty and hunger, improve the health of rice farmers and consumers, and ensure environmental sustainability of rice farming. Its headquarters are in Los Baños, Laguna, in the Philippines. IRRI is known for its work in developing rice varieties that contributed to the Green Revolution in the 1960s which preempted the famine in Asia. It has offices in 17 rice-growing countries worldwide".
