Enabling environment

Agriculture is a dynamic sector and policy makers should be able to adapt to changing circumstances, diverse environments, and societal demands. ISSD Ethiopia aims to advocate the embedding of evidence-based innovations in policy frameworks and to support their implementation. Policy makers now better recognize the value of ISSD interventions. Advocacy has resulted in the recognition of the importance of the informal and intermediate seed systems in providing farmers access to seed of locally demanded crops and varieties. This is illustrated by the 2013 Seed Proclamation and 2014 national Seed Systems Strategy. Key Ethiopian ministry of agriculture partners have acknowledged the contributions of ISSD in addressing seed sector issues in terms of both policy and practice. As a result, ISSD Ethiopia has become a focal point for policy-makers to collect opinions on strategies to address seed sector challenges.
