Seed sector development must be relevant to the current context of smallholder farmers across South Sudan, and at the same time envision a seed sector fitting a more stable and peaceful South Sudan in, hopefully, the near future. The ten pathways outlined herein provide a road map and the concrete actions required for the transformation of South Sudan’s seed sector into a robust, inclusive, sustainable, and resilient seed sector, including vibrant seed business development in South Sudan.
This brief is the outcome of the first South Sudan Seed Hub event organised by the University of Juba, at their campus 8-12 September 2022, in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security in South Sudan (MAFS), the Directorate of Agricultural Research (DAR), the Food and Nutrition Security Resilience Programme (FNS-REPRO) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Wageningen University & Research (WUR), and Integrated Seed Sector Development Africa (ISSD-Africa).
