This working document is a collaborative effort between the Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation (WCDI) of Wageningen University and Research (WUR), Integrated Seed Sector Development in Africa (ISSD-Africa) and FAO South Sudan under the Food and Nutrition Security Resilience Programme (FNS-REPRO). The proposed methodology and tools will be field tested in Torit and Yambio, South Sudan, and validated by the parties mentioned above, based on which a final document will be produced. Building seed system resilience in protracted crises is an important goal of Food and Nutrition Security Resilience Programme (REPRO) South Sudan programme. REPRO South Sudan adopts a food and seed systems approach (FNS) to analyse, understand and promote absorptive, adaptive and transformative seed system resilience capacities in the face of shocks and stressors, in order to improve food and nutrition outcomes. This document presents the working document of the seed system resilience assessment and facilitation tool (SSRA-FT). The SSRA as methodology will be employed by Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation (WCDI), in close consultation with FAO, to develop seed system resilience pathways in South Sudan as part of the REPRO Programme. There are three interrelated parts of the seed system resilience assessment: the SSRA conceptual framework; undertaking the SSRA; and the SSRA toolbox. The SSRA-FT will contribute to developing good practice and policy recommendations in two important domains: building seed system resilience in protracted crises, and seed distribution in emergencies.
