Integrated Seed Sector Development Myanmar (ISSD Myanmar)- Developing a Vibrant Public-Private Seed System for Rice, Oilseeds and Legumes in the Dry Zone

The four year project on Integrated Seed Sector Development Myanmar (ISSD Myanmar) aims to contribute to food security and climate resilience of smallholder farmers in the Dry Zone, by improving smallholder farmer access and uptake of quality seed of improved and well adapted varieties.

This will lead to a sustainable increase in agricultural productivity. Project interventions (2017 – 2020) focus on increasing local availability of quality seed at an affordable price to smallholder farmers; increasing business performance of EGS producing seed farms and improving seed sector coordination.

Launch of the ISSD Myanmar Programme

The project is implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation (MOALI) and a Non-Government Organisation (NGO, TBD) in Myanmar with technical and management support from WUR Wageningen Centre for Development of Innovation.

The project is funded by the Directorate-General for International Cooperation, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of the Netherlands
