Local Seed Business in the Context of Integrated Seed Sector Development
Thijssen, M.H. ; Borman, G.D. ; Verhoosel, K.S. ; Mastenbroek, A. ; Heemskerk, Willem - \ 2015
In: Community Seed Production / Ojiewo, C.O., Kugbei, S., Bishaw, Z., Rubyogo, J.C., FAO - p. 39 - 45.
Quality seed is a key input for agriculture, with a direct impact on agricultural production and productivity. Integrated seed sector development (ISSD) is an inclusive approach that recognizes and builds upon a diversity of seed systems in the sector. We use the ISSD approach to guide us in the design and implementation of seed sector interventions that are complementary to farmers’
practices, with the main aim of increasing farmers’ access to quality seed of superior varieties. In working with the ISSD approach, we recognize a number of guiding principles. In this paper, we describe these principles, and provide examples of how we work with the system of local seed business (LSB) in the ISSD programs in Ethiopia and Uganda. We recognize that LSBs offer an important service to communities by providing access to quality seed of crops and varieties that cannot be obtained reliably through other sources. The guiding principles help us to work towards the development of sustainable LSBs. Within the context of ISSD Africa we will continue to investigate and design interventions to address challenges in seed sector development, focusing on a
select number of themes that are relevant to the LSB context.

The Dutch ‘gouden driehoek’ (golden triangle) refers to successful partnership in agricultural development between government, sector and knowledge institutes. This has been key in securing food & nutrition in the Netherlands. Could this model be applied to African conditions and be the basis for similar success in relation to food & nutrition security? This report is part of the documentation of an exploration in relation to this question. It documents five examples of effective roles of knowledge institutes in the context of agriculture and fisheries innovation in Africa
Going for gold in innovation partnerships responsive to food insecurity in Africa : The role of knowledge institutes – policy paper
Wigboldus, S.A. ; Lee, J. van der; Borman, G.D. ; Buchanan, K.S. ; Hijweege, W.L. - \ 2011
Wageningen : Wageningen UR Centre for Development Innovation
This policy paper summarises findings of an exploratory study of the role of knowledge institutes in public-private partnerships for the improvement of food & nutrition security in Africa. The study supports policy-making by defining what is involved in effective roles of knowledge institutes in related (agricultural) innovation processes. It is critical to understand the bigger picture in which such roles need to be defined. This brief presents the key concepts followed by the main topics of concern, namely innovation, partnerships and how knowledge institutes may strengthen the way in which they play a role in working toward food & nutrition security in Africa
