Integrated seed sector development (ISSD) is an approach aiming to increase farmers’ access to quality seed through the development of market-oriented, pluralistic and vibrant seed sectors. In this course participants learn how to design demand driven interventions tailored to specific crops, value chains and seed systems.
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.
