Event Description

In this course participants can broaden their international experience and strengthen their competencies to support seed sector development, taking an integrated perspective. The overall objective of the programme is to enhance the capabilities to translate the ISSD concept into strategies for making seed programmes and policies that seek enhancement by connecting to present practices. The training is experience-based and task-oriented and highly interactive. It includes lectures, visits to different Dutch seed companies and organisations, case studies, group discussions, assignments and field work.

Upon completion of the course you will:

  • be able to support farmer groups in taking an entrepreneurial approach towards seed production and trade;
  • know how to strengthen private and public functions in seed sector development;
  • know how to address through partnerships and innovation institutional bottlenecks in the seed sector;
  • understand how international agreements impact on domestic seed policies, seed laws and regulatory frameworks;
  • understand the opportunities for putting the ISSD-concept into practice in your own work context.
