Multi Stakeholder Processes
Based on discussions with key stakeholders in the seed sector, both public and private, four priority areas related to seed production and marketing that need to be addresses were identified as:
- Operational and viable seed quality assurance mechanisms;
- Enhanced uptake of quality seed by farmers;
- Sustainable access to foundation seed of requested varieties in the required quantity and quality, and
- Development and enforcement of seed policies and regulation.
Inovation projects will be developed and implemented in partnership with respective public institutions and private sector aimed at piloting mechanisms that contribute to increasing effectiveness of public institutions in specific supportive tasks in relation to these priorities.
