The National Seed Road Map is the result of a consultative process in which critical stakeholders of the seed sector in Nigeria participated. The policy context for this process is an agreement between the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (FMARD) of the Government of Nigeria and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (EKN) in Abuja to jointly engage in a seed sector review, exploring ways to collaborate in the development of Nigeria’s seed sector. One of the steps in this review was the development of a multi-year seed sector development strategy or National Seed Road Map. A team of consultants has been contracted by the EKN through the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO). The team included members of Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation (WCDI), Sahel Consulting, National Agricultural Seeds Council (NASC), East-West Seed (Company and Knowledge Transfer Foundation) and EKN.
